GP practices and other primary Medical services are regulated by the Care Quality Commission (CQC).
This means that all GP practices have to be registered with CQC by Law. CQC checks services to make sure we meet the National standards of Quality and safety, and a central part of this involves listening to the views and experience of people who use the service and using their views to help them make judgements about the service we provide.
Norton Canes practice is registered with the CQC.
In Nov 2014 , CQC carried out Intelligent Monitoring (IM) of all GP practices, in the country. The GP IM looked at 37 indicators that cover 3 of their 5 key questions-Effective, Responsive and Caring. Each GP Surgery was categorised into 6 priority (1-6) Bands, varying from no evidence of risk, showing evidence of risk or elevated risk.
Our practice priority Banding for inspection was Band 6 (Top of the Band) with no evidence of risk (risk score=0). To read the full report please visit the web site www.cqc.org.uk/download/a-to-z/gp-imonitoring-november-2014.
