NHS 111 has an online coronavirus service that can tell you if you need medical help and advise you what to do.

 

Use this service if:

  •       you think you might have coronavirus;
  •       in the last 14 days you've been to a country or area with a high risk   of coronavirus;
  •       you've been in close contact with someone with coronavirus.

 

Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital. Call 119 to book a test.

Care Quality Commission

The Care Quality Commission (CQC) are the independent regulators of all health and social care in England. They are given powers by the government to monitor and inspect all health care premises.

 

During their inspection they ask about five key questions regarding the quality and safety of our services: 

  • Are we safe?
  • Are we effective?
  • Are we caring?
  • Are we responsive?
  • Are we well-led?

 

As well as focusing on the five key questions, they will always look at how services are provided to people in specific population groups. For every GP practice they look at the quality of care for the following six  population groups:

  • Older people
  • People with long-term conditions
  • Families, children and young people
  • Working age people (including those recently retired and students)
  • People whose circumstances may make them vulnerable
  • People experiencing poor mental health (including people with dementia)

You can read more about the CQC by visiting their website www.cqc.org.uk/

During the inspection they interview the doctors, nurses staff and patients. They are particularly keen to seek the opinions of our patients so if you visit the practice on inspection day you may be asked about us.
