This inspection was a focussed follow-up inspection which was completed as a desktop review carried out on 22 August 2019. It was undertaken to assess where the practice had improved in the key question of ‘Safe’ and made the recommended improvements identified during our previous inspection in November 2018. The report covers our findings to those requirements and additional improvements made since the last inspection.

The practice overall rating remains as Good. The practice is now rated as Good for providing Safe Services.

Our key findings were as follows:

  • Care and Treatment was provided in a safe way for service users.
  • Appropriate recruitments systems and processes were in place
  • The practice now had a clinical oversight model in place to ensure staff had the appropriate qualifications and skills to provide safe patient care.
  • Improvements to the security of the dispensary had been put in place.

The areas where the provider should make improvements are:

  • Have oversight of legionella water temperature monitoring carried out by external contractors at both sites and ensure actions are taken when required.

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