CQC Inspection Report January 2020
We were recently inspected by the Care Quality Commission on the 31st of January 2020 and Elgar House was rated as a good practice, the full report can be found by clicking the link above.
On the day of inspection the CQC sent a team to visit the practice to look at how we work. They spent time with members of the practice team, and will also talked to some of our patients who are happy to speak to them.
We had published notice of their visit both on our surgery website and in the surgery waiting areas at this time.
Please know that the CQC inspectors were here to ensure the quality of service we provide, and to do so they needed access to our patients as well as to our staff and premises. They also asked for the right to see medical records, again to ensure quality. This is a statutory requirement, but we and they are sensitive to the need to preserve your confidentiality.
Thank you for your continued support and please feel free to speak to any member of the practice management team should you have any questions.
On behalf of Elgar House
