Balham surgery one of eight NHS GP practices in London with 'inadequate' ratings from the CQC

Postby Community Editor » Tue Jun 21, 2022 1:49 pm

There are currently eight GP surgeries in London which have been told they are Inadequate by the Care Quality Commission (CQC). Each was inspected over the last year or so by the CQC either in response to concerns raised by patients or to follow-up on previous inspections.

This compares to the majority of London GP's which are rated highly. Nine are rated 'Outstanding', 747 rated 'Good' and 38 rated 'Requires Improvement'. The CQC's role to provide assurance that care offered by health and social care providers meets legal standards - and its inspection teams rate services based on five main criteria: Being safe, effective, caring, responsive and well-led. Inspectors provide a rating for each area, along with an overall score.

Each of the surgeries saw a mixed bag of ratings with some receiving a "good" score in at least some areas, and the GPs involved usually respond by taking concerns on board. And with GPs being busier than ever, doctors and other healthcare staff - including receptionists - are calling on patients to be respectful as they try to deliver the best care they can.

Drs Eno and Partners/ Trinity Medical Centre, 278-280 Balham High Road, London, SW17 7AL
The practice registered as Dr Eno and Partners in October 2020. A routine inspection in October 2021 rated it Inadequate. Inspectors found they did not hold emergency medicines that is normally expected. The practice was not always providing care in a way that kept patients safe and protected them from avoidable harm. It was noted, however, that the service did adjust how it delivered services during the pandemic to a good standard.
