THE CHURCH LANGLEY medical centre may be set for a thorough examination from the government after a report highlighted a large number of concerns about the surgery.

Church Langley Medical Centre
The report comes as the Care Quality Commission has published a report on every surgery in the country.

The reports have concentrated on a number of areas.

If the surgery has a number of “may be at risk” factors, then CQC has indicated that they may go in and inspect.

Of the 10,000 plus practices in the country, just over a 1,000 have been placed in Band 1, i.e: the number of “may be at risk factors”, is of the highest concern.

But not only does Church Langley have at risk factors, it also has three “Elevated risk factors.”

The “may be” risk and “may be” elevated risk factors at Church Langley Medical Centre are:

Elevated Risk

1. Dementia diagnosis rate adjusted by the number of patients in residential care homes. (01/04/2013 to 31/03/2014)

2. The percentage of patients with diabetes, on the register, in whom the last blood pressure reading (measured in the preceding 12 months) is 140/80 mmHg or less (01/04/2013 to 31/03/2014)

3.The proportion of respondents to the GP patient survey who described the overall experience of their GP surgery as fairly good or very good. (01/07/2013 to 31/03/2014)

Risk

1.The percentage of patients with diabetes, on the register, in whom the last IFCC-HbA1c is 64 mmol/mol or less in the preceding 12 months (01/04/2013 to 31/03/2014)

2. The percentage of patients with atrial fibrillation, measured within the last 12 months, who are currently treated with anti-coagulation drug therapy or an anti-platelet therapy (01/04/2013 to 31/03/2014)

3.The percentage of patients with diabetes, on the register, who have a record of an albumin:creatinine ratio test in the preceding 12 months (01/04/2013 to 31/03/2014)

4.The percentage of patients with diabetes, on the register, whose last measured total cholesterol (measured within the preceding 12 months) is 5 mmol/l or less (01/04/2013 to 31/03/2014)

5.The proportion of respondents to the GP patient survey who stated that the last time they saw or spoke to a GP, the GP was good or very good at involving them in decisions about their care (01/07/2013 to 31/03/2014)

6. The proportion of respondents to the GP patient survey who stated that the last time they saw or spoke to a GP, the GP was good or very good at treating them with care and concern. (01/07/2013 to 31/03/2014)

7. The percentage of patients who were ‘Very satisfied’ or ‘Fairly satisfied’ with their GP practice opening hours. (01/07/2013 to 31/03/2014)
