We carried out an announced comprehensive inspection at DR G Clinic on 8 January 2020 as part of our inspection programme.

DR G Clinic offers intravenous lignocaine infusions for the treatment of chronic pain. The service is registered with the Commission to provide treatment of disease, disorder or injury from 9 Priory Place, Doncaster, DN1 1BL. At the time of the inspection less than 10 patients had received this treatment.

DR G Clinic provides a range of treatments for chronic pain, for example joint injections which are not within CQC scope of registration and fall under medical practitioners working in independent practice. Therefore, we did not inspect or report on these services.

Six patients provided feedback about the service using CQC comment cards. Patients were very positive about the care and treatment they received.

Our key findings were:

  • The service 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.

  • Patients commented that staff were kind and caring, treated them with respect and involved them in decisions about their care.

  • Services were tailored to meet the needs of individual patients and were accessible.

  • The culture of the clinic and the way it was led and managed drove the delivery and improvement of high-quality, person-centred care.

The areas where the provider should make improvements are:

  • Continue with the programme of planned clinical audit.
