Care Quality Commission (CQC)

From 1 April 2013, providers of NHS general practice and other primary medical services (including walk-in centres and GP-led healthcare centres) are required by law to be registered with the Care Quality Commission.

This is a requirement of The Health and Social Care Act 2008 which introduced a single registration system that applies to health and adult social care services. For more information see the CQC website www.cqc.org.uk 

Registering with the CQC gives assurance to patients that providers are meeting the CQC essential standards of quality and safety. Registration will also provide a way to address poorly-performing practices. CQC has a range of legal powers to make sure providers meet the standards including fines and public warnings. When necessary, CQC can also use criminal or civil law, including prosecution, suspension or, in the most serious cases, cancellation of a provider’s registration.

CQC carried out an announced comprehensive inspection at Beacon Medical on 12th May 2016

Overall the Practice is rated as ‘good’

Please see report below.
