Inspection Summary


Overall summary & rating

Good

Updated 31 May 2019

At the last inspection in March 2017 we rated the practice as good overall and for delivering safe, effective, caring, responsive and well-led services. We carried out an announced comprehensive inspection at the West End Clinic on 30 April 2019 as part of our inspection programme.

We based our judgement of the quality of care at this service on a combination of:

  • what we found when we inspected
  • information from our ongoing monitoring of data about services and
  • information from the provider, patients, the public and other organisations.

We have rated this practice as good overall.

We found that:

  • The practice provided care in a way that kept patients safe and protected them from avoidable harm.
  • Patients received effective care and treatment that met their needs.
  • Staff dealt with patients with kindness and respect and involved them in decisions about their care.
  • The practice organised and delivered services to meet patients’ needs. Patients could access care and treatment in a timely way.
  • The way the practice was led and managed promoted the delivery of high-quality, person-centre care.

The areas where the provider should make improvements are:

  • Continue with plans for staff training in fire safety and infection prevention and control.

  • Review the document management process.

  • Develop coding guidance for staff to follow to ensure consistency.

  • Continue with plans to monitor action taken in relation to patient safety alerts.

Details of our findings and the evidence supporting our ratings are set out in the evidence tables.
