Inspection carried out on 12/01/2019

During a routine inspection

We carried out an announced comprehensive inspection at Ingleton Avenue Surgery on 12 February 2019 as part of our inspection programme.

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 for providing safe, effective, caring responsive and well led services.

We have rated the practice as good for providing effective and responsive care to older people, people with long term conditions, families, children and young people, working age people, those whose circumstances may make them vulnerable and those experiencing poor mental health.

We found that:

  • The practice provided care in a way that kept patients safe and protected them from avoidable harm.
  • Patients received effective care and treatment that met their needs.
  • Staff dealt with patients with kindness and respect and involved them in decisions about their care.
  • The practice organised and delivered services to meet patients’ needs. 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. Leaders had the capacity and skills to deliver high-quality, sustainable care. They had a shared purpose, strived to deliver and motivated staff to succeed.
  • Feedback from patients who used the service, those close to them and external stakeholders was continually positive about the way staff cared for patients.
  • Staff told us they felt supported and engaged with managers and there was a strong focus on continuous learning and improvement at all levels of the organisation.

Whilst we found no breaches of regulations, the provider should:

  • Improve the identification of carers to enable this group of patients to access the care and support they need.
  • Introduce systems to ensure staff are aware of family members where a child within that household is on the at-risk register.
  • Ensure systems are in place to check all items within the doctor’s bags are calibrated appropriately.
  • Complete the second cycle of clinical audit to demonstrate quality improvement.
  • Identify ways of increasing the percentage of children aged two years old and who have not received their boosters and vaccinations.
  • Identify ways to increase the uptake of cervical screening among women aged between 25 to 64 years of age.

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