We undertook a follow up desk-based inspection of The Barn Cosmetic and Dental Clinic on 14 February 2020. This inspection was carried out to review in detail the actions taken by the registered provider to improve the quality of care and to confirm that the practice was now meeting legal requirements.
The inspection was led by a CQC inspector.
We undertook a comprehensive inspection of The Barn Cosmetic and Dental Clinic on 24 July 2019 under Section 60 of the Health and Social Care Act 2008 as part of our regulatory functions. We found the registered provider was not providing well led care and was in breach of regulation 17 of the Health and Social Care Act 2008 (Regulated Activities) Regulations 2014. You can read our report of that inspection by selecting the 'all reports' link for The Barn Cosmetic and Dental Clinic on our website www.cqc.org.uk.
As part of this inspection we asked:
• Is it well-led?
When one or more of the five questions are not met we require the service to make improvements and send us an action plan. We then inspect again after a reasonable interval, focusing on the area where improvement was required.
Our findings were:
Are services well-led?
We found this practice was providing well-led care in accordance with the relevant regulations.
The provider had made improvements in relation to the regulatory breach we found at our inspection on 24 July 2019.

The practice is owned by a company and as a condition of registration must have a person registered with the Care Quality Commission as the registered manager.

Our key findings were:
- The practice had made significant improvement and had ensured that they had established and effective systems and processes which ensured good governance in accordance with the fundamental standards of care.
