Letter from the Chief Inspector of General Practice

We carried out an announced comprehensive inspection at Priory Surgery on 6 October 2015. Overall the practice is rated as good.

Specifically, we found the practice to be good for providing safe, well led, effective, caring and responsive services. It was also rated as good for providing services for all of the population groups.

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

  • Patients’ needs were assessed and care was planned and delivered following best practice guidance.
  • Patients said they were treated with compassion, dignity and respect and they were involved in their care and decisions about their treatment.
  • 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 there was continuity of care, with urgent appointments always available the same day.
  • Risks to patients were assessed and well managed.
  • Staff worked cohesively as a team and understood and fulfilled their responsibilities to raise concerns, and to report incidents and near misses. Information about safety was recorded, monitored, appropriately reviewed and addressed.
  • Staff had received training appropriate to their roles and any further training needs had been identified and planned.
  • There was a clear leadership structure and staff felt supported by management.
  • The practice proactively sought feedback from staff and patients, which it acted upon.
  • The practice were proactive in ensuring the facilities were reviewed and fit for purpose and had been successful in accessing the Prime Minister’s Innovation funding for renovation work which will improve the facilities available.
