CQC Inspection on Wednesday 20th December
The Care Quality Commission (CQC) are the independent regulator of health and adult social care in England.
The CQC make sure health and social care services provide people with safe, effective, caring, responsive and well-led General Practice. They monitor, inspect and regulate services to make sure they meet fundamental standards of quality and safety and publish what they find.
Patients now have the opportunity to express their views about Chiddenbrook as part of this process. There are some Comment cards on reception, with a box to place your completed cards. We also have our usual Comments and Suggestion boxes located in both waiting areas.
We always look forward to hearing what you think of our service, good or bad!
We still have flu vaccinations available if you are eligible and haven't received one yet.
Find out if you need a flu jab each year. Risk groups include over-65s, pregnant women, and anyone with a serious long-term health condition.
Our current health promotion topic is Epilepsy Awareness. In the surgery waiting area we have many different leaflets on display as well as our usual beautifully decorated Noticebord.
Keep an eye out for our next promotion 'Signposting' help for our Elderly community. If you are needing help in the meantime, please try using the 'Pinpoint' link below.
Please use this link to find a whole host of information about services in your area :-)
