Meeting this standard

  • Are not at risk of harm from unsafe or unsuitable equipment (medical and non-medical equipment, furnishings or fittings).
  • Benefit from equipment that is comfortable and meets their needs.

How this check was done

We reviewed all the information we hold about this provider, carried out a visit on 01/02/2011, checked the provider's records and talked to staff.

Our judgement

Dr Dorrington Ward ensures that people who use the service and people who work in and visit the premises are not at risk of harm from unsafe or unsuitable equipment. Equipment is comfortable and meets peoples needs.

User experience

In the case of this location it was not practicable to undertake a visit when patients were on site. Dr Dorrington Ward is a single-handed doctor and sees very few private patients. He does not treat patients but undertakes diagnosis and referral as required.

Other evidence

The equipment is suitable for the service offered. Electrical equipment has been PAT tested.
