People should be cared for by staff who are properly qualified and able to do their job (outcome 12)

Meeting this standard

We checked that people who use this service

  • Are safe and their health and welfare needs are met by staff who are fit, appropriately qualified and are physically and mentally able to do their job.

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 are safe and their health and welfare needs are met by staff who are fit, appropriately qualified and are physically and mentally able to do their job.

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

A human resources policy is in place. Both his personal assistant and the other doctor have worked for Dr Dorrington Ward for several years. When they were employed the correct procedures with CRB checks were undertaken. Both the doctors have their medical insurance and GMC registration up to date. There are no plans to employ other staff - if there were then Doctor Dorrington Ward would use suitable procedures.
