Inspection Summary


Overall summary & rating

Good

Updated 10 January 2019

We carried out an announced comprehensive inspection at The Bell Surgery on 6 November 2018 as part of our inspection programme. Our inspection team was led by a Care Quality Commission (CQC) Inspector and included a GP specialist advisor.

Our judgement of the quality of care at this service is based 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.

This means that:

  • Patients were protected from avoidable harm and abuse and that legal requirements were met.
  • Patients had good outcomes because they received effective care and treatment that met their needs.
  • Patients were supported, treated with dignity and respect and were involved as partners in their care.
  • People’s needs were met by the way in which services were organised and delivered.
  • The leadership, governance and culture of the practice promoted the delivery of high quality person-centred care.

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

  • Continue to monitor and review the uptake for cervical screening to achieve the national target level.

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