Doctors Practice at Kidsgrove Medical Centre is “inadequate”


Kidsgrove Medical centre copyA report by the Care Quality Commission has found one of the practices operating out of Kidsgrove Medical Centre on Mount Road to be inadequate.

The practice, Dr Robinson & Partners, have been placed in special measures and will be inspected again in six months, if insufficient improvements are made the providers could have their registration cancelled leading to a closure of the service.

In the report Professor Steve Field, Chief Inspector of General Practice, states, “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 there remains a rating of inadequate for any population group, key question or overall, we will take action in line with our enforcement procedures to begin the process of preventing the provider from operating the service. This will lead to cancelling their registration or to varying the terms of their registration within six months if they do not improve.

Special measures will give people who use the service the reassurance that the care they get should improve.”

The role of the Care Quality Commission (CQC) as an independent regulator, is to register health and adult social care service providers in England and to inspect whether or not standards are being met. They monitor, inspect and regulate services to make sure they meet fundamental standards of quality and safety and publish their findings. The full report can be found on their website at:
