During a routine inspection

Patients expressed their views and were involved in making decisions about their care and treatment. A GP told us, “I always discuss treatment options with my patients. Offering time to answer any questions they have and can print information for them to take away with them.”

Patients were happy about the care and treatment they received. A patient we spoke with said, “The doctor is always helpful and friendly” and “He is easy to talk to and communicates well.” Another person told us, “I am really happy with the surgery and confident about the advice they give me.”

The practice manager confirmed that one of the practice nurses was the infection control lead. He also said, “The practice receives support from the clinical commissioning group (CCG) specialist lead who also helps us with training and audits.”

The practice supported staff development and facilitated a range of training requested by clinical staff. However, there was no overall training matrix or future plan in place for essential training.

A suggestion box was clearly displayed near the reception desk to obtain suggestions and feedback from patients. The practice manager told us, “We have sent out questionnaires in the past and that is something we will look to do again in the near future.”

CQC Insight

These reports bring together existing national data from a range of indicators that allow us to identify and monitor changes in the quality of care outside of our inspections. The data within the reports do not constitute a judgement on performance, but inform our inspection teams. Our judgements on quality and safety continue to come only after inspection and we will not make judgements on data alone. The evidence tables published alongside our inspection reports from April 2018 onwards replace the information contained in these files.
