During a routine inspection

During our inspection we spoke with the practice manager, the deputy manager, a senior partner and General Practitioner (GP), a practice nurse, and two receptionists.

We also spoke with ten patients who regularly used the service, including which included two members of the Patient Participation Group (PPG). They told us that overall they were happy with the standard of the service provided by the Practice and that they felt all the doctors, nurses and receptionists that worked there were 'very good'. All the patients we met said they would not hesitate to recommend Parkside Practice to anyone who lived locally. One patient told us 'all the staff here are wonderful. I have already recommended the surgery to my friends'. Another patient said 'this is the first surgery I've been too where the doctors have never rushed me. All the GP's are marvellous here. I would highly recommend the surgery to anyone'.

It was evident from records we examined, feedback we received from patients and staff, and practices we observed that care and treatment was planned and delivered in a way that was intended to ensure patient safety and welfare. We found patient's privacy and dignity was respected by staff and that patients views were always taken into account. We found consultations and treatment was provided in a hygienically clean and safe environment. The provider also had effective systems in place to regularly assess and monitor the quality of service that patients received.
