Your Doctor Limited provides private GP services from two registered locations. This inspection report refers to the inspection of the service located at Park Hall Clinic in Buckinghamshire. For information about the other registered service, please select the ‘all reports’ link for Your Doctor Limited on our website at www.cqc.org.uk.

Your Doctor Limited has core opening hours of Monday to Friday from 8am to 8pm. In addition to the core hours, appointments and consultations are available over the weekend. This service is not required to offer an out of hours service. Patients who need medical assistance out of corporate operating hours are requested to seek assistance from alternative services. This is detailed in patient literature supplied by the service.

Your Doctor Limited is registered with Care Quality Commission (CQC) under the Health and Social Care Act 2008 in respect of some, but not all, of the services it provides. There are some exemptions from regulation by CQC which relate to particular types of service and these are set out in Schedule 2 of The Health and Social Care Act 2008 (Regulated Activities) Regulations 2014. 

The founder of the service was also the Lead GP and the registered manager. A registered manager is a person who is registered with the CQC 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.

As part of our inspection we asked for CQC comment cards to be completed by patients prior to our inspection, we received 31 completed comment cards which were all positive about the standard of care they received. The service was described as wonderful, professional, helpful and caring.
