We carried out an announced comprehensive inspection at Kings Edge Medical Centre on 10 April 2018 as part of our inspection programme.

At this inspection we found:

  • The practice had clear systems to manage risk so that safety incidents were less likely to happen. When incidents did happen, the practice learned from them and improved their processes.
  • The practice routinely reviewed the effectiveness and appropriateness of the care it provided. It ensured that care and treatment was delivered according to evidence- based guidelines.
  • Staff involved and treated patients with compassion, kindness, dignity and respect.
  • Patients found the appointment system easy to use and reported that they were able to access care when they needed it.
  • There was a focus on continuous learning and improvement at all levels of the organisation.

The areas where the provider should make improvements are:

  • Ensure all staff are aware of ‘red flag’ sepsis symptoms that might be reported by patients and know how to respond.
  • Continue to monitor and improve patient satisfaction with nurse consultations.
  • Ensure the plan to improve bowel and breast cancer screening uptake is implemented.
