Hereward Group Practice rated ‘Good’ by Care Quality Commission

Following inspections carried out in February and March 2018, Hereward Group Practice has retained its ‘Good’ rating awarded by the Care Quality Commission (CQC).

The CQC’s inspectors found that the Bourne-based practice, which provides primary medical care services to its registered list of 12,600 patients, continues to provide high quality, safe, caring and effective care to its patients.

“We are delighted to have retained our Good rating from the CQC,” comments Dr Ian Wheatley, Senior Partner.  It’s testament to the great care our team provide our patients with, as well as the relationship we have with our patients.

“The whole team has put a huge amount of hard work and determination into retaining our Good rating, by providing the highest quality safe services to our patients.”

The full CQC report on the Hereward Group Practice is available via the CQC website and highlights the Good rating achieved by the practice in each of the five domains – safe, effective, caring, responsive and well-led.

“We are delighted the CQC has recognised the work we have done to retain our Good rating,” adds Debbie Galloway, Practice Manager.  “Our patients are at the heart of everything we do and we are continually looking at where we can improve.”

The practice is part of South Lincolnshire Clinical Commissioning Group, which was equally delighted with the outcome of the CQC’s report, as Rebecca Neno, Deputy Chief Nurse, explains:

“We know how hard the practice team has worked to ensure they retained their Good rating and we are delighted for them.  General practice is challenging at the best of times, so it’s great to see Hereward continuing to build on their success.”
