  • GP and GP out-of-hours services

The Care Quality Commission (CQC) has published a report of the inspection of Dr Amir Mir, previously registered at the Cornwallis Surgery in Hastings, East Sussex.

Immediately after the inspection in July 2015, CQC took urgent enforcement action to protect the safety and welfare of patients by suspending the practice from providing GP services from its premises at Station Plaza Health Centre, Hastings.

A full report of the inspection has been published on the CQC website.

Since the inspection, Dr Amir Mir submitted an application to cancel his registration with CQC. A new provider, Dr David Huw Jones, has taken over at the Cornwallis Surgery, and patients previously registered with Dr Amir Mir are now able to access GP services at the same premises.


For further information please contact Yetunde Akintewe, CQC Regional Engagement Manager, on 07471 020 659. For media enquiries, journalists wishing to speak to the press office outside of office hours can find out how to contact the team here. For general enquiries, please call 03000 61 61 61.

Notes to editors

CQC has published a full report about Dr Amir Mir (Cornwallis Surgery).


To get to the heart of people’s experiences of care, we always ask the following five questions of services.

  • Are they safe?
  • Are they effective?
  • Are they caring?
  • Are they responsive to people’s needs?
  • Are they well-led?

For every NHS GP practice we will look at the quality of care for the following six population groups: Older people, People with long-term conditions, Families, children and young people, Working age people (including those recently retired and students), People whose circumstances may make them vulnerable, People experiencing poor mental health (including people with dementia).

Since 1 April, providers have been required to display their ratings on their premises and on their websites so that the public can see their rating quickly and easily. Further information on the display of CQC ratings.
