Review carried out on 8 November 2019

During an annual regulatory review

We reviewed the information available to us about Town Hall Surgery on 8 November 2019. We did not find evidence of significant changes to the quality of service being provided since the last inspection. As a result, we decided not to inspect the surgery at this time. We will continue to monitor this information about this service throughout the year and may inspect the surgery when we see evidence of potential changes.

During a routine inspection

This practice is rated as Good overall. (First inspection for this provider)

The key questions are rated as:

We carried out an announced comprehensive inspection at Town Hall Surgery on 8 August 2018 as part of our inspection programme.

At this inspection we found:

  • The practice had clear systems to manage risk so that safety incidents were less likely to happen. When incidents did happen, the practice learned from them and improved their processes.
  • The practice routinely reviewed the effectiveness and appropriateness of the care it provided. It ensured that care and treatment was delivered according to evidence- based guidelines.
  • Staff involved and treated patients with compassion, kindness, dignity and respect.
  • Patients found the appointment system easy to use and reported that they were able to access care when they needed it and liked having access to a daily open surgery.
  • There was a strong focus on continuous learning and improvement at all levels of the organisation.
