Care Quality Commission (CQC) Inspection - Results
The Practice was inspected by CQC, an independent regulator of health and adult social care services in England. The reports of our CQC inspection that was conducted in July 2016 has now been published. The inspection was valuable in helping us further improve the services that we provide by facilitating some time out from the busy day to day job of looking after our patients to look objectively at what we need to do to ensure the highest standards. We have had time to act upon many of the recommendations and as detailed in our action plan sent to CQC, the remainder of required actions are planned imminently.
The report was published on 20 October 2016 which you can view here.
The purpose of the inspection was to check that the Practice provides essential standards of quality and safety such as respecting and involving people who use our services, care and welfare of people who use our services, cleanliness and infection control and standards of staffing.
We are required to provide all our patients with a named GP.
All patients have been allocated to Dr Prodhan, unless you have already requested a different GP. If you are unhappy with this choice, please contact a member of the Reception Team.
TPP SystmOne - Enhanced Data Sharing
This surgery uses TPP SystmOne as our clinical system for patient records.
We can confirm that we have not enabled the enhanced data sharing on your records that has recently been in the news.
Like all other GP practices, unless you have opted out, your Summary Care Record will be available for appropriate health care professionals to view when you need care elsewhere , such as A&E clinicians.
Again, unless you have opted out, Care Data is available which helps the NHS plan patient services etc. See further details on our website.
You can opt out of either or both of these by completing and returning the opt out forms (available on the website or ask at reception).
