Overall inspection


Updated 17 December 2019

We decided to undertake an inspection of this service on 13 November 2019 following our annual review of the information available to us which took place in May 2019. This inspection looked at the following key questions; was the service providing effective and well led services for the registered patient population. We decided not to inspect whether the practice was providing safe, responsive or caring services as there was no information from the annual regulatory review which indicated this was necessary.

We based our judgement of the quality of care at this service on a combination of:

  • what we found when we inspected
  • information from our ongoing monitoring of data about services and
  • information from the provider, patients, the public and other organisations.

We have rated this practice as good overall and good for all population groups.

We found that:

  • The practice provided care in a way that kept patients safe and protected them from avoidable harm.
  • Patients received effective care and treatment that met their needs.
  • Staff were developed and supported to ensure services were of high quality.
  • The way the practice was led and managed promoted the delivery of high-quality, person-centre care.
  • There had been quality improvement work to improve patient access to services.
  • Governance systems were operated including quality improvement initiatives.
  • The practice was engaged in local initiatives and worked effectively alongside partners in the local healthcare system.

We found one area the provider should consider improvements.

  • Monitor the reviewed system for pathology results to ensure all required actions are completed.

Details of our findings and the evidence supporting our ratings are set out in the evidence tables.
