The Care Quality Commission (CQC) recently visited the Munro Medical Centre in West Elloe Avenue and were impressed how the patients rated the practice highly in several aspects of care.
This very positive rating recognises the commitment throughout the practice team in working hard to help our patients.South Lincolnshire Clinical Commissioning Group
A statement from South Lincolnshire Clinical Commissioning Group said: “The entire team at Munro Medical Centre were pleased to be awarded a ‘Good’ rating by the Care Quality Commission (CQC).
“This very positive rating recognises the commitment throughout the practice team in working hard to help our patients.
“The CQC were particularly impressed in how patients rated the practice highly for several aspects of care, including being treated with compassion, dignity and respect and that patients were involved in decisions about their care and treatment.
“The CQC team commended the practice to be very clean, tidy and well maintained, and also the practice’s performance in the medication Dispensing Services Quality Scheme.
“Importantly, the practice scored highly in cervical screening and in caring for patients with long-term conditions.
“Good preventative care meant that the emergency admission rates for significant conditions such as diabetes and asthma was around half the national average – a real achievement.”
