We carried out an announced comprehensive inspection on 5 September 2018 to ask the service the following key questions; Are services safe, effective, caring, responsive and well-led?

Are services well-led?

We carried out this inspection under Section 60 of the Health and Social Care Act 2008 as part of our regulatory functions. This inspection was planned to check whether the service was meeting the legal requirements and regulations associated with the Health and Social Care Act 2008.

The services are provided to clients privately and are not commissioned by the NHS.

The service is registered with the Care Quality Commission (CQC) under the Health and Social Care Act 2008 in respect of the services it provides. Go Global Vaccinations and Travel Health Clinic Ltd is registered with CQC to provide the regulated activities of treatment of disease, disorder or injury and diagnostic and screening procedures. The types of services provided are consultation and treatment services.

At the time of our inspection a registered manager was in place. 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.

We received 26 completed CQC comment cards from clients who used the service. Feedback was positive about the service delivered at the clinic.

We were unable to speak with clients about their experience of the service they received. This was because, on the day of our visit, no one was receiving treatment regulated by us.

Our key findings were:

  • Care and treatment was planned and delivered in a way that was intended to ensure

people's safety and welfare.

  • The treatment room was well-organised and well-equipped.
  • Clinicians regularly assessed clients according to appropriate guidance and standards, such as those issued by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence.
  • Staff were up to date with current guidelines.

  • There were effective systems in place to check all equipment had been serviced regularly.
  • The provider was aware of, and complied with, the requirements of the Duty of Candour.
  • The provider had an effective system for ensuring the identity of clients who attended the service.

  • Information about how to complain was available and easy to understand.
  • Systems and risk assessments were in place to deal with medical emergencies and staff were trained in basic life support.

The areas where the provider should make improvements are:
