Letter from the Chief Inspector of General Practice

We carried out an announced comprehensive inspection at Enfield Island Surgery on 20 July 2016. The overall rating for the practice was good, however the practice was rated as requires improvement for providing a safe service. The full comprehensive report on the July 2016 inspection can be found by selecting the ‘all reports’ link for Enfield Island Surgery on our website at www.cqc.org.uk.

This inspection was an announced focused inspection carried out on 26 September 2017 to confirm that the practice had carried out their plan to meet the legal requirements in relation to the breaches in regulations that we identified in our previous inspection on 20 July 2016. This report covers our findings in relation to those requirements and also additional improvements made since our last inspection.

.

Overall the practice is now rated as good.

Our key findings were as follows:

  • The practice had a defibrillator in place. We saw evidence of a maintenance log to ensure that it was working and fit for purpose. All staff had received training and the use of the defibrillator had been included in the updated practice policy and procedure for dealing with emergencies.

  • All staff had received a current Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check.

However, there were also areas of practice where the provider needs to make improvements.

The provider should:

  • Consider the installation of an induction loop.
