GP practices will be given a mark out of ten by patients through a new government initiative.
The Department on Health's rating system aim to improve services for NHS patients and PMI policyholders with patient scores on four points: waiting room time, opening hours, ease of getting appointments and doctor engagement.
Health Minister Lord Howe said:"Opening up this data is another step forward in giving people more choice. Patients will now be able to see exactly what the experience of being a patient at each GP surgery is really like.
"This data will not only help patients choose the right GP surgery for them but will also give GP surgeries and the NHS new information they can use to make fresh, innovative improvements."
The initiative will apply to all 8,000 surgeries in England and data will be based on patients' responses to the GP Patient Survey.
The DoH said GPs were an important first port of call for PMI policyholders and NHS patients alike.
The government has further attempted to "open up" health services with additional data and analysis on GP surgeries available on the NHS Information Centre website.
