Background to this inspection

Updated 20 July 2020

The Mosslands Medical Practice provides primary care services to 9135 patients. The practice delivers services under a Primary Medical Services (PMS) contract. The PMS contract is the contract between general practices and NHS England for delivering primary care services to local communities. The practice is registered with the Care Quality Commission (CQC) to provide the regulated activities of diagnostic and screening procedures, maternity and midwifery services, surgical procedures, family planning and treatment of disease, disorder and injury.

Regulated activities are delivered from the following address: Irlam Medical Centre, Macdonald Road, Irlam, M44 5LH.

As part of the inspection, we viewed all evidence remotely which had been sent to us by email.

There are three partner GPs (two male and one female), two salaried GPs (both female) and an assistant practitioner. They are supported by a nursing and administrative team.

The age profile of the practice population mostly consists of patients aged from 15 years old to 44 years old. Information taken from Public Health England placed the area in which the practice was in the third most deprived decile (from a possible range of between 1 and 10). In general, people living in more deprived areas tend to have greater need for health services.

Patients requiring a GP outside of normal working hours are advised to contact the surgery and they will be directed to the local out of hours service which is provided by NHS 111.
