Inspection Summary

Overall summary & rating


Updated 31 March 2020

We carried out an announced focused inspection at Portsdown Group Practice on 20 January 2020 to follow up on the Safe key question. At our last inspection on 4 and 5 December 2018, the practice was rated good overall but the key question of Safe was rated as requires improvement.

At our last inspection there was a breach in Regulation 12, safe care and treatment. A healthcare assistant (HCA) had worked at a branch site without another clinician present and had carried out a task outside their competency. At this inspection in January 2020, we found the provider had satisfactorily addressed these areas.

We have rated this practice as good for the key question of Safe. People were protected from avoidable harm, including abuse.

The ratings of good for the key questions of Effective, Caring, Responsive and Well led services have been carried forward from the last rated inspection.

The practice continues to be rated good overall.

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.

The provider should make improvements:

  • Implement their revised system for monitoring patients on high-risk medicines under a 'shared-care' arrangement with the hospital.

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