Suttons Medical Group rated ‘Good’ by Care Quality Commission

Following an inspection carried out in July 2019, the Suttons Medical Group has been rated as Good by the Care Quality Commission (CQC). 

The CQC’s inspectors found that the group, encompassing Long Sutton Medical Centre and Sutton Bridge Medical Centre, which provides primary medical care services to its registered list of 16,000 patients, provides high quality, safe, caring and well-led care to its patients.

“We are delighted to have received a Good rating from the CQC,” comments

Dr Alistair Rudd, 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 building on our previous Good rating.  We have done this through providing the highest quality safe services to our patients.”

The full CQC report on the Suttons Medical Group is available via the CQC website www.cqc.org.uk and highlights the Good rating achieved by the practice providing safe, caring, responsive and well–led services to all of their patients. 

“We are delighted the CQC has recognised the work we have done, particularly around ensuring services are well led, resulting in our rating of Good,” adds Patsi Slater, Practice Business 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 maintain their Good rating and we are delighted for them.  General practice is challenging at the best of times, so it’s great to see the Suttons Medical Group continuing to build on and improve the healthcare for its patients.”
