Abbey Medical Centre has improved enough to earn a rating of ‘Good’ from the independent body that checks the quality and safety of doctors’ surgeries.
Previously, the central Reading centre, had been rated as ‘Requires Improvement’, after an inspection in September 2018 found concerns around patient safety and the centre's leadership
But after visiting again in June 2019, the Care Quality Commission said it had found the practice was giving patients safe, effective and kind care. The way the practice was led and managed also promoted the delivery of high-quality, person-centred care, according to the CQC report published on 30 July 2019.
Abbey Medical has around 2,420 patients.
