Inspection carried out on 9 October 2015

During a routine inspection

Letter from the Chief Inspector of General Practice

We carried out an announced focussed desk top inspection of Cosham Park Avenue Surgery on 9 October 2015. Overall the practice is rated as good.

Our previous inspection in January 2015 had found the practice was good overall. We found that the practice required improvement in the Safe domain due to breaches of regulations relating to safe delivery of services. The practice was good for Effective, Caring and Responsive and Well Led services.

We followed up on our inspection of January 2015 to check that action had been taken to meet the minimum standards. We have not revisited Cosham Park Surgery as part of this review because they were able to demonstrate that they were meeting the standards without the need for a visit.

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

  • Risk assessments related to the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH) were being carried out effectively and all cleaning procedures were robust enough to ensure control of infections in the practice.
  • 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 assessed and well managed.

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.
