Our registration includes our Statement of Purpose
Under the Health and Social Care Act 2008 every registered provider must have a Statement of Purpose. This is a document which includes a standard required set of information about a service.

What are CQC looking for when carrying out their inspections?
Each service that CQC inspects (eg GP surgeries) is assessed against five key questions:
These questions will be asked by inspectors in relation to six population groups:
CQC will visit the practice and speak to staff, patients and representatives from our PPG (Patient Participation Group). They will then compile a report, which along with our rating, will be posted on our website and in reception.
There are four levels of rating:
Requires Improvement (for services that CQC assess as not preforming as well as it should. CQC then informs the service how it should improve).
