Inspection Summary


Overall summary & rating

Good

Updated 5 February 2020

We carried out an inspection of this service due to the length of time since the last inspection. Following our review of the information available to us, including information provided by the practice, we focused our inspection on the following key questions:

  • Are services at this location effective?
  • Are services at this location well-led?

Because of the assurance received from our review of information we carried forward the ratings for the following key questions:

  • Are services at this location safe?
  • Are services at this location caring?
  • Are services at this location responsive?

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 this practice as good overall and good for all population groups.

We found that:

  • Patients received effective care and treatment that met their needs.
  • 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:

  • Continue to monitor and improve medicines prescribing rates.
  • Review and improve uptake rates for the childhood immunisation programme and the cervical screening programme in line with national targets.
  • Review and improve the system for seeking and recording patient consent to care and treatment in line with national guidelines.

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