Overall inspection

Requires improvement

Updated 14 May 2019

We carried out an announced comprehensive inspection at Jubilee Gardens Medical Centre on 28 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 the practice as requires improvement overall. Our previous inspection in September 2017 rated the practice as requires Improvement.

We have rated all population groups as good and requires improvement due to concerns with patient satisfaction with consultations and appointments access.

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.
  • The practice organised and delivered services to meet patients’ needs. Patients could access care and treatment in a timely way. However, some patients reported concerns with accessing appointments at the practice.
  • The way the practice was led and managed promoted the delivery of high-quality, person-centre care.

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

  • Develop a sepsis toolkit and provide a safety net leaflet for patients to provide more information on identifying signs of sepsis.
  • Review the storing of blank prescriptions that are kept by clinicians off site.
  • Strengthen the policy of following up patients on high risk medicines; who are receiving care in a variety of settings.
  • Review how to identify and support young carers.
  • Continue to improve patient satisfaction with consultations and appointments access.
  • Review how complaints are dealt with, discussed and shared with the team where appropriate.

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