This practice is rated as Good overall. (Previous rating 19 July 2018 – Good)

The safe key question at this inspection is rated as: Good.

We carried out an announced focused inspection at The Corner Surgery Dr Mulla on 24 January 2019 to follow up a breach of regulation from our last inspection carried out on 19 July 2018.

The full comprehensive report on the July 2018 inspection can be found by selecting the ‘all reports’ link for The Corner Surgery Dr Mulla on our website at .

At the previous inspection of 19 July 2018, we rated the practice as ‘good’ overall but we identified a breach of Regulation 19 HSCA (RA) Regulations 2014 - Fit and proper persons employed. This was because recruitment procedures were not established and operated effectively for all persons employed.

This inspection was a follow up inspection to confirm that the provider had carried out their plan to meet the legal requirements.

Our key findings were as follows:

  • The provider had taken action to meet the breach of regulation. The provider had carried out appropriate recruitment checks for all temporary GPs.

We also found that the provider had reviewed and updated a significant event analysis and their system for managing significant events.
