To ensure that quality of care provided to patients is kept to the highest standards all practices are required to undergo regular practice visits by external assessors. These visits involve a team of five assessors which may include a lay member.
If you do not wish your records to be inspected on any such visit, please contact the Practice Manager. (See sign in waiting room for further information)
