CQC Rates Ealing GP Practice As Inadequate

The CQC has rated Dr Naz Asghar’s practice in Ealing, west London, as Inadequate.

The practice was rated as Inadequate for being safe, effective and well-led. It was rated Requires Improvement for caring and Good for being responsive.

Some of the areas where CQC have told the practice it must improve are:

  • The practice must introduce clear and effective processes for recording and reporting significant events and incidents.
  • It must provide staff with appropriate training to carry out their roles in a safe and effective manner.
  • It must ensure that Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) checks are undertaken as part of the recruitment process for all staff employed at the practice or a risk assessment to indicate the risks of not having one have been assessed.

Ursula Gallagher, Deputy Chief Inspector of General Practice, at CQC said “We found that people registered with Dr Naz Asghar’s practice are not getting the high quality care which everyone should expect to receive from their GP.”

“We are placing this practice in special measures – and we would now encourage the practice to seek the support it needs to improve. Practices placed in special measures will be inspected again within six months. If insufficient improvements have been made we will take action in line with our enforcement procedures to begin the process of preventing the provider from operating the service.”
