'Benchmarking' clinical practice and integrating such data with national guidelines offers a way of establishing standards for use in clinical governance. We report on a feasibility project for benchmarking clinical practice in one topic area (otitis media) using simulated clinical scenarios. Consistency and variations in clinical management were identified for different scenarios. Participants perceived the process likely to reflect actual practice and effect change in clinical management.
