Birthday Annual Review

From April 2014 we will be changing the way we manage patients with long term health conditions.      Patients who have conditions such as diabetes, asthma, COPD, hypothyroidism, cardiovascular disease or high blood pressure will have a single review for all their long term medical problems each year in the month of their birthday .  This will reduce the number of visits patients have to make to have their long term conditions monitored which we hope will be much more convenient.  We would encourage you to contact the practice around the time of your birthday to book a Birthday Review  appointment if this applies to you.

Transferring from the old system to a birthday review system is going to be challenging and may result in some patients being seen earlier or later than they initially expected.  The doctors would like to thank all their patients for their support whilst we are implementing these changes

 

 

Care Quality Commission

Our practice is registered with the Care Quality Commission (CQC) which regulates all health and adult social care services in England, including those provided by the NHS. The CQC makes sure that essential standards of quality and safety are being met where care is provided and has a wide range of enforcement powers to take action on behalf of people who use services if services are unacceptably poor.

The CQC Outcomes that the Practice complied with fall into 5 key areas:

  • Personalised care, treatment & support
  • Safeguarding & safety
  • Suitability of staffing
  • Quality & management
  • Information & involvement

The CQC aims to make sure that the voices of service users are heard, asking patients to share their experiences of practice services which helps form the focus of their reviews. If you would like further information about the basis of practice inspections please ask to speak to our Practice Manager.

Our CQC Registered Manager is: Dr Donal Hynes

 

We are registered to provide the following services:

  • Diagnostic & screening procedures
  • Family planning services
  • Maternity & midwifery services
  • Surgical procedures
  • Treatment of disease, disorder & injury

The practice was inspected in early 2016 and a copy of the inspection report can be accessed via the link below.
