Review carried out on 19 March 2020

During an annual regulatory review

We reviewed the information available to us about Swingbridge Surgery on 19 March 2020. 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.

Inspection carried out on 8 November 2018

During a routine inspection

We carried out an announced comprehensive inspection at Swingbridge Surgery on 8 November 2018 as part of our inspection programme.

Our judgement of the quality of care at this service is based 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.

I have rated this practice as good overall.

This means that:

  • People were protected from avoidable harm and abuse and that legal requirements were met.
  • Patients had good outcomes because they received effective care and treatment that met their needs.
  • Patients were supported, treated with dignity and respect and were involved as partners in their care.
  • People’s needs were met by the way in which services were organised and delivered.
  • The leadership, governance and culture of the practice promoted the delivery of high quality person-centred care.

Whilst we found no breaches of regulations, the provider should:

  • Review the provision of privacy curtains in consulatatiuon and treatment rooms.

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