Letter from the Chief Inspector of General Practice

This is a focused desk top review of evidence supplied by The Northenden Group Practice, for two areas, within the key question safe.

We found the practice to be good in providing safe services. Overall, the practice is rated as good.

The practice was inspected on 2 July 2015. The inspection was a comprehensive inspection under the Health and Social Care Act 2008. At that inspection, the practice was rated ‘good’ overall. However, within the key question safe, safe care and treatment and fit and proper

persons employed were identified as ‘requires improvement’, as the practice was not meeting the legislation at that time; Regulation 12 HSCA (RA) Regulations 2014 Safe care and treatment and Regulation 19 HSCA (RA) Regulations 2014 Fit and proper persons employed.

The practice supplied an action plan and a range of documents which demonstrated they are now meeting the requirements of Regulation 12 of the Health and Social Care Act 2008 (Regulated Activities) Regulations 2014 Safe care and treatment and Regulation 19 HSCA (RA) Regulations 2014 Fit and proper persons employed.
