CQC Final Inspection Report  -  April 2017

Royal Crescent and Preston Road Practice is delighted with the rating of “Outstanding” awarded by the Care Quality Commission (CQC).  The Inspection Team assesses healthcare providers against a set of quality indicators - safety, effectiveness, caring, responsiveness and well-led, and how services are delivered to six population groups.

 The Practice is well-organised, strategic, inclusive and friendly. There is a culture of openness and honesty alongside continuous improvement. We provide training, education, learning, mentoring and pastoral support. We have an excellent reputation and are committed to providing strategic support in the locality and across Dorset.

 We believe that personal care is at the heart of family general practice.  Our patients tell us that the continuity of care and a relationship with their own GP is really important; the practice was above average for its satisfaction scores on consultations with GPs and Nurses and we are very proud of this achievement.

 CQC received consistently positive feedback from patients. We welcome all comments from our patients and use these to develop the service we provide. Our thanks go to the members of the Patient Participation Group who work closely with us on this.

 The CQC highlights the following work as Outstanding – development of services for the homeless and vulnerable, the visiting team of practitioners who proactively manage the over-75 population within care homes and the patients’ own homes and the Community Angels who provide befriending, transport and support to patients.

 CQC recognised that our staff are motivated and inspired to offer kind and compassionate care. We wish to thank all these highly skilled, motivated, committed and caring staff - clinical, managerial and administrative, who work so hard on a daily basis to provide the highest standards of care to our patients, and are thrilled this has been recognised by a national organisation.
