Inspection carried out on 17 August 2016

During a routine inspection

Letter from the Chief Inspector of General Practice

We carried out an announced comprehensive inspection of Hill View Surgery on 24 November 2015. A breach of legal requirements was found, in that not all risks relating to infection control, significant events and medicines were effectively managed. Also, the practice had not undertaken an appropriate check with the Disclosure and Barring Service, prior to a clinical member of staff starting work.

Overall the practice was rated as good; in view of the above the practice was rated as requires improvement for providing safe services.

After the comprehensive inspection, the practice wrote to us to say what action they had, and were taking to meet the legal requirements in relation to the breach.

We undertook a desk based review on 17 August 2016 to check that the provider had completed the required actions, and now met the legal requirements. This report only covers our findings in relation to those requirements. We did not visit the practice as part of this review. 

You can read the report from our last comprehensive inspection, by selecting the 'all reports' link for Hill View Surgery on our website at www.cqc.org.uk.

This review found that the provider had taken appropriate action to meet the legal requirements.

  • The practice was rated as good for providing safe services.
  • The systems to assess and manage risks relating to infection control, significant events and medicines had been strengthened to ensure the services are safe. 

  • The Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) and chaperone policy had been reviewed, to ensure the practice obtained appropriate checks for all staff

CQC Insight

These reports bring together existing national data from a range of indicators that allow us to identify and monitor changes in the quality of care outside of our inspections. The data within the reports do not constitute a judgement on performance, but inform our inspection teams. Our judgements on quality and safety continue to come only after inspection and we will not make judgements on data alone. The evidence tables published alongside our inspection reports from April 2018 onwards replace the information contained in these files.
