During an inspection looking at part of the service

This visit was a follow up to our inspection of the practice on 7 May 2014.

We had found there was not an effective system in place to assess the risk of health care associated infections and to prevent, detect and control their spread. We also found no cleaning specification or schedule linked to any formal risk assessment of the practice in relation to infection prevention and control (IPC). Additionally, although the practice had introduced a regular log relating to some aspects of infection prevention and control, it did not meet the requirements set out in the Department of Health Code of Practice on the Prevention and Control of Infections and Related Guidance.

Following our inspection in May 2014 we served the practice with a warning notice under Section 29 of the Health and Social Care Act 2008 requiring the practice to be compliant with the requirements of Regulation 12 of the Health and Social Care Act 2008 (Regulated Activities) Regulations 2010 by 1 August 2014. We carried out this visit to check that the requirements had now been met.

We found that the practice had taken appropriate action and was now compliant with the regulation.
