GP Practice put into special measures

The GP practice based at the St. John’s Health Centre, Hermitage Road has been put into special measures by the CQC. The practice was inspected on 8 September but the report was not published until 29 December 2016. The inspection report gives the practice an overall rating of inadequate and the specific areas where they scored the lowest were safe services and leadership. Full details of the CQC report and the action taken by the practice since the inspection can be found on the Health Centres website, http://www.thefamilypractice-stjohns.co.uk.

The Chief Inspector of General Practice wrote in the CQC report; ‘I am placing this service in special measures. Services placed in special measures will be inspected again within six months. If insufficient improvements have been made such that it remains a rating of inadequate for any of the population group, key question or overall, we will take action in line with their enforcement procedures.’
