The Care Quality Commission (CQC) are the independent regulator of health and adult social care in England.
The CQC make sure health and social care services provide people with safe, effective, compassionate, high-quality care and encourage them to improve.
They monitor, inspect and regulate services to make sure they meet fundamental standards of quality and safety and publish what is found, including performance ratings to help people choose care.
Our GP Practice has recently undergone a CQC inspection and the results are now freely available on the CQC Website. You can access the report below.
At the time of inspection in August 2016 we were awaiting some training that was re-booked for our GPs for safeguarding guidelines. This has now been completed and our evidence submitted to the Care Quality Commission, together with some additional procedural issues relating to staff induction and compiling a stock control for disposal items. The submission of all these revised items can be viewed in the second link below. This shows our revised rating in January 2017. We are now classified as 'GOOD'.
