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

  • Patients received effective care and treatment that met their needs.
  • Staff dealt with patients with kindness and respect and involved them in decisions about their care.
  • The practice organised and delivered services to meet patients’ needs. Patients could access care and treatment in a timely way.
  • The way the practice was led and managed promoted the delivery of high-quality, person-centre care.

Whilst we found no breaches of regulations, the provider should:

  • Continue to take steps to improve uptake of child immunisations and women attending for their cervical screening.
  • Continue to review and take steps to improve performance in relation to National GP Patient Survey results.
  • Continue to take steps to review and improve patient confidentiality at the front desk.
