Review carried out on 4 July 2019

During an annual regulatory review

We reviewed the information available to us about E7 Health on 4 July 2019. We did not find evidence of significant changes to the quality of service being provided since the last inspection. As a result, we decided not to inspect the surgery at this time. We will continue to monitor this information about this service throughout the year and may inspect the surgery when we see evidence of potential changes.

Letter from the Chief Inspector of General Practice

The practice is rated good overall and good for providing safe services.

We carried out an announced comprehensive inspection of this practice on 26 January 2016. The overall rating for the practice was good. However, a breach of legal requirements was found during that inspection within the safe domain. After the comprehensive inspection, the practice sent us evidence and actions detailing what they would do to meet the legal requirements. We conducted a focused inspection on 4 May 2017 to check that the provider had followed their plans and to confirm that they now met legal requirements. This report only covers our findings in relation to those requirements.

During our previous inspection on 22 January 2016 we found the following area where the practice must improve:

  • Ensur

    recruitment 

    arrangements 

    include 

    all 

    necessar

    y pre-employment 

    checks 

    for 

    all 

    staff.

Our previous report also highlighted the following areas where the practice should improve:

  • Carry out further clinical audits and re-audits to improve the quality of patient outcomes.
  • Implement a system to monitor use of prescription pads. 

  • Ensure Patient Group Directives (PGDs) and Patient Specific Directives (PSDs) are consistently authorised.
  • Ensure all staff receive annual (BLS) training in Basic Life Support.
  • Ensure Legionella water testing is carried out regularly and regular fire drills are undertaken.

  • Staff understood and fulfilled their responsibilities to raise concerns and report incidents and near misses.
