Why we carried out this review:

This review was a focused review of information without undertaking a site visit inspection to follow up on the areas identified as requiring improvement at our last inspection. The Responsive key question was reviewed to ensure that appropriate action had been taken by the provider, to meet the fundamental standards of health and social care.

How we carried out the review:

Throughout the pandemic CQC has continued to regulate and respond to risk. However, taking into account the circumstances arising as a result of the pandemic, and in order to reduce risk, we have conducted our reviews differently.

This review was carried out in a way which enabled us to request information from the provider without the needs for a site visit. This was with consent from the provider and in line with all data protection and information governance requirements.

This included:

  • Requesting evidence from the provider
  • Liaising with the management team as appropriate.

Our findings

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 in the Responsive key question and for all population groups.

We found that:

  • The practice adjusted how it delivered services to meet the needs of patients during the COVID-19 pandemic. 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 monitor and embed the new systems and ways of working to continue to improve patient access by telephone.

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