CQC Inspection on Tuesday 12th May


Dear Patients,

The practice has been notified that we will be visited by an inspection team from the Care Quality Commission (CQC) on Tuesday 12th May.

This is a routine inspection that is undertaken at every practice across the UK.  It should not have any impact on the services that we offer patients on the day.  If you are visiting the practice on the 12th, the inspection team might ask to talk to you about the Practice.

Alternatively, if you would like to feedback to the CQC about the Practice before their visit, you can e-mail them on, telephone them on 03000 61 61 61 or visit their website to fill out an on-line form.  If you are visiting the practice prior to the 12th, there are also forms you can fill out confidentially that will only be seen by the CQC inspectors.  ask at reception for more details.

Once the inspection is completed, we will post the results on this website and in the Practice waiting room.

Kind Regards,

The Orchard Practice
