Care Quality Commission are the independent regulator of health and social care in England. Inspectors from CQC will be visiting Eastfield Medical Centre on March 13th to ensure that Eastfield Medical Centre are providing people with safe, effective, compassionate and high-quality care. If you are visiting the Surgery on this day you may be approached by an inspector and asked if you would answer some questions. This is not mandatory and if you would rather not speak to them that is fine. The inspection will not affect the provision of services. Following the inspection, Eastfield Medical Centre will publish the results.
Named Accountable GP
For many years we have run a "Usual Doctor" system where one of the Doctors in the practice takes responsibility for your care. Recently the Government has wanted this extending to all practices and so this has been changed to the "named accountable GP". From our and your point of view this has made no difference, however so that you are aware of who is responsible for your care your prescription repeat ordering slip will tell you.
If you do not have repeat prescriptions you can contact the surgery and ask one of the receptionists. You are of course free to see any of the GPs but it is helpful to know who is "your doctor" as any queries or letters or messages will go to that person.
