The Care Quality Commission has published another 39 reports on the quality of care provided by GP practices that have been inspected recently.

Of the 39, two have been rated as outstanding, 27 have been rated as good, and ten have been rated as requiring improvement.

Under CQC’s new programme of inspections, all of England’s GP practices are being given a rating according to whether they are safe, effective, caring, responsive and well led.

The two practices rated outstanding are Concord Medical Centre in South Gloucestershire and Cuckoo Lane Practice in Ealing, for the full list of the other ratings see below.

The CQC said the main reasons Concord Medical Centre was rated outstanding include the fact it employed a full-time mental health nurse consultant who reduced patient referrals by 85%, as well as a recently developed carers’ group where the Carers Association to see carers once a week at the practice.

Integrated care is provided for older patients through a dedicated Age UK support worker based at the practice three days a week, providing care for older patients living alone.
