Care Quality Commission

Please click here to view our CQC Inspection Report from August 2015

The Care Quality Commission (CQC) is responsible for monitoring the standards of hospitals, dentists, care homes and care services. As from April 2013 they will also be responsible for monitoring the standards of GP surgeries.

Our surgery, along with all other GP surgeries, has registered with the Care Quality Commission (CQC). This involves assessing ourself against a set of standards. There are 16 "Essential Standards" that the CQC uses to assess the services that it monitors, these relate directly to the provision of care. There are another 12 standards that relate to the day-to-day running of the service. Since the work of care homes is very different from hospitals and hopitals different from GP surgeries the significance of each of the standards can vary between services. The standards relate to regulations in the Health & Social Care Act.

The CQC will routinely monitor the services that we provide and carry out two yearly inspections and reports. As with all CQC reports these will published and accessible on the CQC website. You can use the CQC website to provide feedback on any CQC registered services such as hospitals and care homes and of course GP surgeries. The links below will take you to the front page of the CQC website and to the section relating to our surgery on the CQC website.
