Abstract: <h4>Objective</h4>To investigate the influence of geography on quality control (QC) testing in the point of care testing (PoCT) in general practice trial.<h4>Design and methods</h4>Within-practice imprecision for QC testing for HbA1c, urine albumin:creatinine ratio, lipids and international normalised ratio was calculated for each geographic region.<h4>Results</h4>There was no significant difference between the region of testing and within-practice imprecision, except for triglyceride and HDL cholesterol.<h4>Conclusions</h4>PoCT was conducted to an equivalent analytical standard across geographic regions.
