Rather like the Ofsted inspection of schools in this country, primary care providers (GPs) are inspected by the Care Quality Commission.
The Haddenham Medical Centre underwent an inspection by the CQC in November 2017. This included a site visit to talk to staff and patients as well as to examine the facilities and see how they are used. Inspectors also conducted detailed telephone conversations with a small number of patients.
The CQC report has just been published, and the headline finding is that the Haddenham Medical Centre has been rated as 'Good' overall.
Practice Manager Ellen Solley had this to say:
"We are very pleased as the CQC rate us as Outstanding in two areas: 'Well-Led' and 'Care of Older People'.
This represents all the hard work by the team since our last inspection in 2014. The CQC inspector advised that only 4-5% of practices nationally get Outstanding in any area so to get rated Outstanding in two areas is a great achievement."
The full report is available to read by clicking on the PDF featured below the images.
