Updated 12 April 2016

The practice is rated as outstanding for providing responsive services. They reviewed the needs of their local population and engaged with the clinical commissioning group (CCG) in an attempt to secure improvements to services where these were identified. The practice worked closely with other organisations and with the local community in planning how services were provided to ensure that they meet patients’ needs, for example, they were the sole GP service providing care to a specialist learning disability residential unit for people with severe behavioural and mental health problems. Patients said they could make an appointment with a GP and that there was continuity of care, with urgent appointments available the same day. The practice had a system in place for handling complaints and concerns and responded quickly to any complaints.
