Overall inspection


Updated 21 April 2020

We carried out an announced comprehensive inspection at Meden Medical on 2 March 2020 as part of our inspection programme. This is the first inspection of the practice following Primary Integrated Community Services Limited becoming the registered provider of this service on 15 September 2019.

The key questions are rated as:

Are services safe? – Good

Are services effective? – Good

Are services caring? – Good

Are services responsive? – Good

Are services well-led? – Good

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.
  • Patients received effective care and treatment that met their needs.
  • Staff dealt with patients with kindness and respect and involved them in decisions about their care.
  • The practice organised and delivered services to meet patients’ needs. 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.

The area where the provider should make improvements is:

  • Strengthen and better document supervision of non-medical prescribers to include a review of their prescribing practices and consultations.

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