Why is this important?

The CQC ratings are the medical professions equivalent of an OFSTED rating for schools, and the CQC awards ratings to GPs of either ‘Outstanding’, ‘Good’, ‘Requires Improvement’ or ‘Inadequate’ in order to help people make informed choices about their care and encourage improvement in quality across the health sector.

How did we do it?

We are delighted and proud of this achievement – for our company, staff and the people we serve.

This is recognition of the seven years of hard work we have put in as a brand new social enterprise to improve the quality of primary care for the people we serve.

We have achieved this through by having a fantastic team of well trained and motivated staff, good strong leadership, and a commitment to quality, excellence and continuous improvement - when things don’t go right, we learn, fix them, and improve.

We are particularly proud that we are a social enterprise, with a focus on good quality patient care, not profitts. We have created a special place to work that harnesses all our talents, given us a shared purpose and a common set of values
