Letter from the Chief Inspector of General Practice

We carried out an announced comprehensive inspection at Hailey View Surgery on 5 January 2016. Overall the practice is rated as good.

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 assessed and well managed.
  • The practice had developed its own treatment templates to ensure staff assessed patients' needs and delivered care in line with current evidence based guidance.
  • Staff had 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.
  • The practice had adopted a system of all patients having a usual GP. This provided continuity of care and the GP took responsibility for all correspondence for these patients.
  • Urgent same day appointments were available in addition to telephone consultations and routine appointments which could be booked up to four weeks in advance.
  • 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.

The areas where the provider should make improvements are:

  • Ensure staff receive training in infection control at a level that is appropriate to their role.

  • Review the chaperone policy to include the outcome of the risk assessment regarding non-clinical members of staff performing chaperone duties.

  • Update the health and safety poster with details of the identified health and safety lead so staff know who to refer to.
