Have your say

INSPECTORS from a health watchdog have praised a city healthcare centre following an inspection.

Guildhall Walk Healthcare Centre was handed a ‘good’ rating after a comprehensive inspection from the Care Quality Commission (CQC)

The CQC carried out the inspection of the large health centre in Guildhall Walk – which has 7,300 patients – back in August, with the final report published on October 25.

Professor Steve Field, the CQC’s chief inspector of general practice said in a letter: ‘The practice had good facilities and was well equipped to treat patients and their needs.

‘It proactively looked out for children with additional needs and introduced a medical report to ensure that staff were aware of how best to support the child whilst they were at the surgery.’
