Letter from the Chief Inspector of General Practice

We carried out an announced comprehensive inspection at Harptree Surgery on 15 March 2016. Overall the practice is rated as good.

Our key findings across all the areas we inspected were as follows:

  • There was an open and transparent approach to safety and an effective system in place for reporting and recording significant events.
  • Risks to patients were assessed and well managed.
  • Staff assessed patients’ needs and delivered care in line with current evidence based guidance. Staff had the skills, knowledge and experience to deliver effective care and treatment.
  • Patients said they were treated with compassion, dignity and respect and they were involved in their care and decisions about their treatment. The practice scored highly on the GP patient survey.
  • Information about services and how to complain was available and easy to understand.
  • Patients said they found it easy to make an appointment with a named GP and that there was continuity of care, with urgent appointments available the same day.
  • The practice had good facilities and was well equipped to treat patients and meet their needs.
  • There was a clear leadership structure and staff felt supported by management. The practice proactively sought feedback from staff and patients, which it acted on.
  • The provider was aware of and complied with the requirements of the Duty of Candour.
  • The practice provided pharmaceutical services to almost all those patients who used the practice.

The areas where the provider should make improvements are:

  • The practice should engage more effectively with the patient participation group to improve collaborative working with service users.

  • The practice should review procedures for monitoring temperatures within the dispensary where medicines were stored.

  • Review the practice of cutting of blister packs and placing them in weekly compliance aids.
