Comment on Intelligence Monitoring Report by CQC 2014
This heavily criticized ‘risk’ ranking of all Practices to form the basis and timeliness of future inspections has rated us 4 out of 6. It is not a performance judgement and is not based on a CQC inspection. It is based on criteria which have been proven, and acknowledged by CQC, not to correlate with quality of care provided. Many of the measures used are outside the G.P’s control.
We have looked at the criteria on which they consider us at ‘risk’ (albeit slight). We have already carefully audited these criteria prior to the report and feel that we can fully justify our status on these criteria.
We are very proud of the quality of healthcare we provide and indeed we recently had a very detailed deanery training inspection which we passed without a problem.
We will formally be inspected by CQC within the next 2 years and that information will be available thereafter on our website as well as the CQC website.
