We are delighted and proud to let you know that The Locality Health has have just been rated as “Outstanding” by the Care Quality Commission. This is the highest possible rating and we believe the first to be rated as such in North Somerset.
The full report is available to read on the CQC Website: http://www.cqc.org.uk/location/1-502911955
To be rated overall “Outstanding” is a huge achievement for a small practice in an area of very high medical and social need. This is great reflection for the company, staff and the people we serve.
We have achieved this by having an amazing team of excellent staff who care about local people by being committed to providing quality, great access to other services and seeking innovative ways to improve patient outcomes.
As most of you will know, Locality Health Centre is a distinctive community based organisation. Funding from the NHS goes on patient care. This is due to no money being paid to shareholders, or taken as profit by partners. It is embedded in the For All Healthy Living Centre, providing holistic approach and access to a wide range of services. We work closely with patients and broader community to improve health and wellbeing of local people
We are particularly pleased that the whole centre was recognised as having a huge part to play in what we offer. CQC saw that the shared purpose and common set of values led to a strong team working well together to have a real impact.
