Inspection Summary


Overall summary & rating

Good

Updated 6 November 2019

We carried out an announced focused inspection at Kirkgate Surgery on 26 September 2019 as part of our inspection programme.

We decided to undertake an inspection of this service following our annual review of the information available to us. This inspection looked at the following key questions; are services effective and are services well-led.

Because of the assurance received from our review of information we carried forward the ratings for the following key questions: are services safe, are services caring, are services responsive.

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 and good for the population groups and requires improvement for working age people (including those recently retired and students).

We found that:

  • Patients received effective care and treatment that met their needs.
  • The way the practice was led and managed promoted the delivery of high-quality, person-centre care.

The areas where the provider should make improvements are:

  • Continue to review and improve hypnotic prescribing.
  • Continue to review and improve cervical screening uptake.
  • Continue to improve the breast cancer screening rate.

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