The Care Quality Commission (CQC) are the independent regulator of health and adult social care in England.
The CQC make sure health and social care services provide people with safe, effective, compassionate, high-quality care and encourage them to improve.
They monitor, inspect and regulate services to make sure they meet fundamental standards of quality and safety and publish what is found, including performance ratings to help people choose care.
Our GP Practice has recently undergone a CQC inspection and the results are now freely available on the CQC Website. You can access the report below
There were two improvement suggestions in the report;
1) To improve childhood immunisations uptake. The low rate noted by the CQC inspectors were due to coding problem, as we had achieved over 90%. This was confirmed by them after the visit – as stated in the report.
2) We actively enquire about carers and signpost them to appropriate services. This is also coded onto their medical notes so that all who come into contact with them are aware. We have information in the waiting room as well as our website, in several languages, to guide carers to seek support and advice.
