Last year, two Berkshire West CCGs chose this as a QP Premium. The latest data for practice achievement in this category is now available here. This runs from a baseline of end March 2017 to the end of September 2017. The great majority of practices have achieved a reduction (highlighted in green) and there has been an overall reduction in all four CCGs.
