We carried out an announced comprehensive inspection at Clover City practice on 20 November 2017 as part of our inspection programme.

At this inspection we found:

  • The practice had systems and processes in place to manage risk and minimise safety incidents occurring. When incidents did happen, the practice learned from them and improved their processes.

  • The practice routinely reviewed the effectiveness and appropriateness of the care it provided. It ensured that care and treatment was delivered according to evidence- based guidelines.

  • Staff involved and treated patients with compassion, kindness, dignity and respect.

  • Patients found the appointment system easy to use and reported that they were able to access care when they needed it.

  • There was a focus on learning and improvement at all levels of the organisation.

  • The practice should consider and develop plans to improve their uptake for cervical screening which is below coverage target for the national screening programme.
