The Bexley Group Practice and the Plas Meddyg Surgery were rated as ‘Good’

Two Bexley GP practices have been rated as ‘Good’ by the Care Quality Commission (CQC).

The Bexley Group Practice and the Plas Meddyg Surgery received the rating after inspections by specialist teams as part of the CQC’s new nation-wide programme compiled 54 reports on the quality of care.

Professor Steve Field, Chief Inspector of General Practice, said: “After more than 2,000 inspections we now have the evidence that the vast majority of England’s GP practices are providing a service which is safe, effective, caring, responsive and well led.

“But, unfortunately, there are still areas of practice that are inadequate and unacceptable.

“Patients have a right to expect high quality care from every GP practice.”
