Overall inspection


Updated 19 March 2020

We carried out an announced comprehensive inspection at Dr Abiodun Obisesan on 29 January 2020 following our annual review of the information available to us including information provided by the practice. Our review indicated that there may have been a significant change to the quality of care provided since the last inspection.

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 and good for; older people, people with long-term conditions, families, children and young people, working age people (including those recently retired and students), people whose circumstances make them vulnerable, and requires improvement for, people experiencing poor mental health (including people with dementia) population groups.

We found that:

  • The practice provided care that kept patients safe, and protected them from avoidable harm.
  • An effective policy to manage changes to patients medicines from other providers was seen. Medicines that were prescribed and supplied by other providers were included in patient’s clinical records that we viewed.
  • A system to manage medicine safety alerts and disseminate them through the practice was seen. Staff showed us how information from alerts was acted on and seen by the relevant staff.
  • 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.
  • We found staff immunisation records were held both centrally and in staff members individual records.
  • The way the practice was led and managed promoted the delivery of high-quality, person-centre care.

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

  • Improve the quality of data that could affect the care and treatment of people experiencing poor mental health (including people with dementia).

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