TWO GP practices in Hampshire need to make improvements, according to a report following an inspection.

The Middle Park Medical Centre, in Middle Park Way, Leigh Park, which is run by Dr Mohamed Hazeldene, was flagged up for not storing medicine properly, not keeping it locked up correctly, and not storing prescription pads in the right way.

Inspectors heard some staff at Manor Way Surgery, in Manor Way, Lee-on-the-Solent, were not happy with the standard of cleaning, and went to check the practice.

Both inspections were carried out during a day in October, by the Quality Care Commission, which has published its findings today.

Both practices delivered four green ticks, but needed to make improvements on standards of caring for people safely, and protecting them from harm.

Middle Park Medical Centre said it has bought safes and has made changes following the inspection.

Manor Way Surgery were unable to comment at this stage.

More than 900 practices across the country were inspected, where nine practices were seen to have serious failings.

These were:

. Dr Harira Syed’s practice, Rochdale, Lancashire

. Norris Road Surgery, Sale, Cheshire

. Wolds Practice, Horncastle, Lincolnshire

. Kingshurst Medical, Birmingham, West Midlands

. Lincoln Road Surgery, Peterborough, Cambridgeshire

. Northfield Surgery, Doncaster, South Yorkshire

. Dr Satish Patel’s, Reading, Berkshire

. Long Street Surgery, Wigston, Leicestershire

. King Street Surgery, Burton upon Trent, Staffordshire
