We carried out an announced comprehensive inspection at Midland Skin Clinic as part of our inspection programme.

This service provides independent dermatology services for adults and children, offering a mix of regulated skin treatments as well as other non-regulated aesthetic treatments. There are some exemptions from regulation by CQC which relate to particular types of regulated activities and services and these are set out in and of The Health and Social Care Act 2008 (Regulated Activities) Regulations 2014. We only inspected and reported on the services which are within the scope of registration with the CQC.

This service is registered with CQC under the Health and Social Care Act 2008 in respect of the provision of diagnostic and screening procedures, treatment of disease, disorder or injury and surgical procedures.

Dr Sajjadali Rajpar is the registered manager. A registered manager is a person who is registered with the Care Quality Commission to manage the service. Like registered providers, they are ‘registered persons’. Registered persons have legal responsibility for meeting the requirements in the Health and Social Care Act 2008 and associated Regulations about how the service is run.

Our key findings were:

  • The service provided care in a way that kept patients safe and protected them from avoidable harm.
  • Policies and procedures were in place to support the delivery of safe services.
  • The premises and equipment were well maintained, and appropriate risk assessments were undertaken to ensure the safety of patients and staff.
  • There were regular reviews of the effectiveness of treatments, services and procedures to ensure care and treatment was delivered in line with evidence-based guidelines.
  • Patients received effective care and treatment that met their needs.
  • There were systems in place for identifying, acting and learning from incidents and complaints to support service improvement.
  • Staff treated patients with kindness, dignity and respect.
  • The practice organised and delivered services to meet patients’ needs.
  • There was a clear strategy and vision for the service. The way the practice was led and managed promoted the delivery of high-quality, person-centre care.
