We carried out an announced comprehensive inspection at Parkview Practice on 11 and 19 March 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 requires improvement overall.

•The practice did not have clear systems and processes to keep patients safe.
