In response to CQC banding released in November 2014
The practice became aware of issues raised in the recent CQC Banding report in January 2014 following upgrading to a much more advanced computer system. Since that time the practice has been working to address the identified areas. If you wish to see the banding results which were issued in November 2014 please visit http://www.cqc.org.uk/sites/default/files/1-549723762%20GP%20IM%20V101.pdf
The practice was inspected by the CQC on 26th September 2013 and the result of the inspection was found to meet standards in all of the areas and we received the highest possible rating. To see the complete CQC report click below.
Since the inspection in September 2013 changes have been made by the practice and in the past 12months the practice has implemented a new upgraded computer system, a new telephone system and a new appointment system. As well as this the surgery has employed 3 Prescribing Nurse Practitioners and a GP.
The most recent data confirms a significant improvement and inspection of 26th September 2013 confirmed that we met standards in relation to people’s privacy, dignity and independence and human rights were respected.
ON THE 26TH SEPTEMBER 2013 THE SURGERY WAS INSPECTED BY THE 'CARE QUALITY COMMISSION' AND WE PASSED THE INSPECTION.
