Letter from the Chief Inspector of General Practice

We carried out an announced comprehensive inspection at Dr Ravi Sharma on 1 September 2016. Overall the practice is rated as requires improvement.

Our key findings across all the areas we inspected were as follows:

  • There was an open and transparent approach to safety and an effective system in place for reporting and recording significant events.
  • Risks to patients were mostly assessed and well managed.
  • Staff assessed patients’ needs and delivered care in line with current evidence based guidance. Staff had been trained to provide them with the skills, knowledge and experience to deliver effective care and treatment.
  • Patients said they were treated with compassion, dignity and respect and they were involved in their care and decisions about their treatment.
  • Information about services and how to complain was available and easy to understand. Improvements were made to the quality of care as a result of complaints and concerns.
  • Patients said they found it easy to make an appointment with a named GP and there was continuity of care, with appointments available the same day.
  • The practice had good facilities and was well equipped to treat patients and meet their needs.
  • There was a clear leadership structure and staff felt supported by management. The practice proactively sought feedback from staff and patients, which it acted on.
  • The provider was aware of and complied with the requirements of the duty of candour.
  • Data showed some patient outcomes were lower compared to the national average however this had been recognised and the practice were making improvements which were reflected in the 2015/16 data

  • Although some audits had been carried out, we saw no evidence that audits were driving improvements to patient outcomes.

  • There was no formal process for the review and management of those patients on high risk medication.

  • There were no clinical meetings with the nurse, GP and long term locum to ensure information was shared and patients were discussed.

The areas where the provider must make improvement are:

  • Implement a procedure for the monitoring and management of high risk medication and patients receiving them.

  • Ensure clinical meetings with the nurse, GP and long term locum take place.

The areas where the provider should make improvement are:

  • Implement a continuous programme of quality improvement including clinical audit.
