Inspection Summary

Overall summary & rating


Updated 20 April 2021

We carried out an announced focused inspection at Church Road Surgery (also known as Dr Sashi Shashikanth) on 8 March 2021. This inspection was undertaken as we received information of concern from stakeholders regarding patient access to Covid-19 vaccinations. We looked at how patients were accessing the vaccine as part of this inspection.

Church Road Surgery (Dr Sashi Shashikanth) was rated good overall and for all key questions at their previous inspection on 25 October 2018.

This inspection looked at the following key questions:

  • Effective
  • Responsive
  • Well-led

We based our judgement of the quality of care at this service on a combination of:

  • what we found when we inspected
  • information from our ongoing monitoring of data about services and
  • information from the provider, patients, the public and other organisations.

We have rated this practice as good overall and good for all population groups.

We found that:-

  • Patients received effective care and treatment that met their needs.
  • The practice organised and delivered services to meet patients’ needs. Patients could access care and treatment in a timely way.
  • The way the practice was led and managed promoted the delivery of high-quality, person-centre care.

The areas where the provider should make improvements are:

  • Continue progress to improve the uptake of childhood immunisations and cervical screening.
  • Review results of GP Patient Survey with a view to improving in areas where practice scores were lower than both local and national averages.
  • Ensure regular monitoring of coding of patient records with reference to patients who are receiving shared care.

Details of our findings and the evidence supporting our ratings are set out in the evidence tables.
