We carried out an announced comprehensive inspection at Ghosh Medical Group on 14 June 2021 as part of our inspection programme.

This service is registered with CQC under the Health and Social Care Act 2008 in respect of some, but not all, of the services it provides. There are some exemptions from regulation by CQC which relate to particular types of regulated activities and services and these are set out in Schedule 1 and Schedule 2 of The Health and Social Care Act 2008 (Regulated Activities) Regulations 2014. Ghosh Medical Group provides a range of non-surgical cosmetic interventions and intravenous therapy treatments, some of which are not within CQC scope of registration. Therefore, we did not inspect or report on these services.

The registered manager for the service is Dr Arun Ghosh. A registered manager is a person who is registered with the Care Quality Commission to manage the service. Like registered providers, they are ‘registered persons’. Registered persons have legal responsibility for meeting the requirements in the Health and Social Care Act 2008 and associated Regulations about how the service is run.

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.
  • Staff dealt with patients with kindness and respect and involved them in decisions about their care.
  • The service organised and delivered services to meet patients’ needs. Patients could access care and treatment in a timely way.
  • Staff reported a good culture and systems were in place for quality control and governance.

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

  • Investigate and take action in relation to the incident concerning vaccine fridge temperatures. To include how this was not picked up through the current system of checks.
  • Only supply unlicensed medicines against valid special clinical need of an individual patient where there is no suitable licensed medicine available.
  • Develop a programme of two cycle clinical audit.
  • Formalise an audit of medicines prescribing.
