Safe

Good

Updated 2 November 2018

At our previous inspection on 15 February, we rated the practice as requires improvement for providing safe services.

These arrangements had significantly improved when we undertook a follow up inspection on 16 October 2018. The practice is now rated as good for providing safe services.

The practice implemented a clear system and process for significant events. We noted clear documentation was completed and significant events were standard agenda items during staff meetings.

A register had been established for vulnerable children and adults and clear alerts had been added into patient’s records. The register was overseen by the lead GP and practice manager and patients on the register were monitored and reviewed routinely as part of safeguarding and multidisciplinary meetings.

A formal system for monitoring uncollected prescriptions was in place and this was overseen by the practice manager and any queries were passed to the pharmacist to follow up.

Actions and outcomes had been documented in relation to alerts received from the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA), these were monitored and reviewed during partner and clinical meetings. We noted for example the practice had completed actions and reviewed alerts linked to Sodium Valproate.
