Nottinghamshire GP Dr Steve Kell, chairman of Bassetlaw CCG, wrote in his blog that he had decided to publish the information after a patient asked how she could find out more about doctors he planned to refer her to.
He advised the patient initially that for the routine procedure she needed, any of the doctors at the hospital were fine. But after a previous poor experience, she wanted to know which consultant 'would listen', and to know what colleagues and patients thought of doctors at the hospital department.
Dr Kell wrote that at a CCG discussion 'we agreed that the CCG had a unique opportunity, as a membership organisation, to promote transparency, increased peer review, open discussion regarding local services'.
He added: 'So, on a personal level, I've decided to publish my scores from my revalidation survey. Thousands of doctors have been revalidated so far. There's an opportunity to increase transparency, to publish both peer and patient feedback, and it's at least a debate worth having.'
