The Quality Care Commission makes sure health and social care services provide people with safe, effective, compassionate, high-quality care and we encourage care services to improve. Their role is to register care providers; monitor, inspect and rate services; protect people who use services; and publish their views on major quality issues in health and social care.
For NHS GP practices, there is a publication of ratings for each location, at both key question and population group level. Ratings are awarded on a four-point scale; ‘Outstanding’, ‘Good’; ‘Requires Improvement’, or ‘Inadequate’.
The inspection takes a day and involves a number of clinical, site manager and staff discussions with the Care Quality Commission inspectors. They look at the contribution made by both the Site based team as well as the WFHP wide team.
All our sites have had a CQC inspection recently and we are proud to announce that ALL our sites have been awarded GOOD!
