Inspection carried out on 9 October 2017

During an inspection to make sure that the improvements required had been made

We carried out a focused inspection of Papineni Dental Practice on 9 October 2017.

The inspection was led by a CQC inspector who was supported by a specialist dental adviser.

We carried out the inspection to follow up concerns we originally identified during a comprehensive inspection at this practice on 2 November 2016 under Section 60 of the Health and Social Care Act 2008 as part of our regulatory functions.

At a comprehensive inspection we always ask the following five questions to get to the heart of patients’ experiences of care and treatment:

  • Is it safe?
  • Is it effective?
  • Is it caring?
  • Is it responsive to people’s needs?
  • Is it well-led?

When one or more of the five questions is 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 areas where improvement was required.

At the previous comprehensive inspection we found the registered provider was providing effective, caring and responsive care in accordance with relevant regulations. We judged the practice was not providing safe and well-led care in accordance with, regulation 17 Good Governance, and regulation 18 Staffing of the Health and Social Care Act 2008 (Regulated Activities) Regulations 2014.
