Letter from the Chief Inspector of General Practice
We carried out an announced focused inspection at Hanscombe House Surgery on 12 July 2016. This was to check that improvements had been made following the breach of legal requirements we identified from our comprehensive inspection carried out on 15 December 2015.
This report only covers our findings in relation to the areas requiring improvement as identified on inspection in December 2015. You can read the report from this comprehensive inspection, by selecting the 'all reports' link for Hanscombe House Surgery on our website at www.cqc.org.uk. The areas identified as requiring improvement during our inspection in December 2015 are as follows:
- Risk assess a member of the non-clinical practice team and determine whether or not a Disclosure and Barring check is required.
- Develop an effective system to assess and manage risks to patients receiving high risk medicines.
Our key findings on this focused inspection were that the practice had made improvements since our previous inspection and was now meeting regulations that had previously been breached. Specifically:
- A robust system was in place for the effective management of patients receiving higher risk medicines.
- The practice had risk assessed the role of a member of the non-clinical practice team and a Disclosure and Barring Service check had been completed.
