Overall summary & rating


Updated 13 January 2020

We carried out an announced inspection at Lincoln Road Medical Practice on 27 November 2019. This was a focussed inspection following our Annual Regulatory Review programme.

The practice was first inspected in July 2016. We rated the practice good for all domaims and population groups and good overall.

This inspection focused on the following key questions:

  • Effective
  • Well-led

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

  • Safe
  • Caring
  • Responsive

At this inspection we based our judgement of the quality of care at this service on a combination of:

  • what we found when we inspected
  • information collected during the annual regulatory review programme
  • 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 look at ways to improve the uptake of the childhood immunisation and cervical screening programmes.

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