Why we carried out this inspection

This inspection was a comprehensive inspection as part of our inspection programme and included an on-site visit.

How we carried out the inspection/review

Throughout the pandemic CQC has continued to regulate and respond to risk. However, taking into account the circumstances arising as a result of the pandemic, and in order to reduce risk, we have conducted our inspections differently.

This included:

  • Completing remote clinical searches on the practice’s patient records system and discussing findings with the provider.
  • Reviewing patient records to identify issues and clarify actions taken by the provider.
  • Requesting evidence to be submitted to us electronically from the provider.
  • Speaking with staff from two local care homes and the chairperson of the patient participation group.
  • A site visit.

Our findings

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 Good overall

We found that:

  • Staff we spoke with felt they were supported and valued in their work.
  • 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.
  • Staff had the skills, knowledge and experience to carry out their roles. There was a system in place to monitor compliance with staff training. Staff were encouraged and supported to develop their skills and knowledge.
  • Systems were in place to assure the provider of the competency of staff working in advanced roles
  • Staff dealt with patients with kindness and respect and involved them in decisions about their care.
  • The practice adjusted how it delivered services to meet the needs of patients during the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • Patients could access care and treatment in a timely way.
  • 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:

  • Review and improve the documentation in relation to significant events and complaints to ensure investigations are fully documented and learning and outcomes are shared.
  • Improve the protocol for safety alerts so that you are assured that clinical staff have read them in a timely manner.
  • Improve the practice protocol in place for medication reviews to ensure the medical record links to the medication prescribed in the patient record.
  • Continue with efforts to complete staff immunisations records.

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