Review carried out on 13 September 2019

During an annual regulatory review

We reviewed the information available to us about Barton Family Practice on 13 September 2019. We did not find evidence of significant changes to the quality of service being provided since the last inspection. As a result, we decided not to inspect the surgery at this time. We will continue to monitor this information about this service throughout the year and may inspect the surgery when we see evidence of potential changes.
