Inspection carried out on 26 November 2017

During an inspection to make sure that the improvements required had been made

Letter from the Chief Inspector of General Practice

We carried out an announced comprehensive inspection at Ashville Surgery on 14 January 2016. The overall rating for the practice was good, with a requires improvement rating for the key question of safe and we issued a requirement notice for breaches of Regulation 12 of the Health and Social Care Act 2008 (Regulated Activities) Regulations 2014 (Safe care and treatment). The full comprehensive report on the January 2016 inspection can be found by selecting the ‘all reports’ link for Ashville Surgery on our website at www.cqc.org.uk.

This inspection was a desk-based review carried out on 26 November  2017 to confirm that the practice had carried out their plan to meet the legal requirements in relation to the breaches identified in the requirement notice.

Overall the practice is now rated as good, with the previous rating of requires improvement for the key question of safe updated to a rating of good.

Our key findings were as follows:

  • The practice was able to demonstrate that they had considered risks and identified mitigating actions in a number of areas.

  • Systems were in place to monitor the use of prescription paper

However, there was an area of practice where the provider should make improvements.

The provider should:

  • Consider current guidance from the Resuscitation Council (UK) as part of their risk assessment and rationale for no defibrillator on site.

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.
