Why we carried out this inspection

The inspection was a comprehensive inspection of Dr J.R. Naik and Partners under a new provider registration to rate the service.

How we carried out the inspection

This inspection was carried out in a way which enabled us to spend a minimum amount of time on site.

This included:

  • Conducting staff interviews using video conferencing.
  • Completing clinical searches on the practice’s patient records system (this was with consent from the provider and in line with all data protection and information governance requirements).
  • Reviewing patient records to identify issues and clarify actions taken by the provider.
  • Requesting evidence from the provider.
  • A short 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 found that:

  • The practice provided care in a way that kept patients safe and protected them from avoidable harm.
  • Safeguarding arrangements had been developed to help support and protect the practice’s most vulnerable patients.
  • Infection prevention and control measures were in place to minimise the risks to patients.
  • The premises appeared well maintained and there were systems for managing the health and safety of staff and patients although oversight was not always evident.
  • The practice learned from incidents and had implemented systems for sharing learning with staff and minimising the risk of reoccurrence.
  • Our clinical searches found medicines and long-term conditions were generally well managed and followed up, with few areas for review.
  • Patients received effective care and treatment that met their needs.
  • The practice was involved in quality improvement of the services however, learning from audits undertaken was not always evident.
  • Staff dealt with patients with kindness and respect and involved them in decisions about their care. There was a strong focus on supporting those with caring responsibilities.
  • 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-centred care.

Whilst we found no breaches of regulations, the provider should:

  • Improve oversight for all aspects of health and safety across the main and branch sites.
  • Address any issues identified during our clinical searches of medicines and long-term conditions that require follow up.
  • Improve shared learning and improvement through clinical audit.

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