The Care Quality Commission (CQC) has published the ratings of 37 more GP practices, including one outstanding rating and three rated inadequate.

Despite serving the fifth most deprived ward in the country, and second most densely populated area in England (London is the first), Waterloo Road Medical Centre in Blackpool received an outstanding rating following an inspection in July.

Waterloo Road regularly supported GP trainees who were in need of extension to their training and achieved the Navajo Kite Mark as a lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender friendly practice.

The practice has a comprehensive sexual health programme that reached even unregistered local people, and offered a referral to a family nurse practitioner to all teenage pregnancy mothers to support and coach them through their pregnancy and first year of their child’s life.

Responding to the rating, Sue McMillan CQC’s deputy chief inspector of general practice in the north said: “The area’s teenage pregnancy rate is the second worst in the North West, so I was particularly impressed with the referral system – to a family nurse practitioner for all teenage pregnancy mothers that supported and coached them through their pregnancy.”

In contrast, Ashfield Medical Centre in Nottinghamshire was put into special measures, along with Barton Surgery in Plymstock and LPS – The Surgery in Birmingham.
