Under the Health and Social Care Act (2008), from 1 April 2013 all providers of NHS general practice (and other primary medical services) must be registered with the Care Quality Commission (CQC).
People have a right to expect safe, high quality care. As the regulator of health and social care in England, CQC plays a vital role in making sure that care services meet those expectations.
The Practice has received two planned inspections since the regulations came into force and we are delighted to report a good outcome at both inspections. Our most recent inspection took place in November 2014 and we received good ratings across all five areas of being safe, effective, caring, responsive and well led. We also had an area of outstanding work recognised in the arrangements that we have in place with our Patient Participation Group and associated email Patient Reference Group.
We are always keen to encourage you (our patients) to share your experiences with us. The CQC are also always happy to hear from patients.
For our latest CQC inspection report follow this profile link and read more about the great work that our dedicated clinical and administrative teams carry out at the Practice.
You can also use the profile link above to register your details, so that you can set up email alerts to advise you when our profile updates, including when the CQC publish a new inspection report about our services.
