We carried out an unannounced inspection of this practice on 15 February 2016. Breaches of legal requirements were found. After the inspection, the practice wrote to us to say what they would do to meet legal requirements in relation to safe care and treatment.

Are services safe?

We found that this practice was providing safe care in accordance with the relevant regulations.

Background

Bondgate dental practice is situated in the centre of Helmsley, North Yorkshire close to public transport links. The practice has two treatment rooms, a waiting area and a reception area.

The practice had no registered manager at the time. 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 practice is run.

Our key findings were:

  • Equipment including the compressor was replaced and validated giving due regard to the pressure vessel certification requirements.
  • The practice is now compliant with its legal obligations under Ionising Radiation Regulations (IRR) 99 and Ionising Radiation (Medical Exposure) Regulation (IRMER) 2000 including having a named RPA for the practice and equipment.
