The Care Quality Commission (CQC) are the independent regulator of health and adult social care in England.
The CQC make sure health and social care services provide people with safe, effective, compassionate, high-quality care and encourage them to improve.
They monitor, inspect and regulate services to make sure they meet fundamental standards of quality and safety and publish what is found, including performance ratings to help people choose care.
Our GP Practice has recently undergone a CQC inspection and the results are now freely available on the CQC Website. You can access the report below
We are delighted to receive our final CQC reports for both Wallingbrook and Winkleigh following inspections held in March and April 2016. CQC have reported both practices as good in all areas. We are very proud of this outstanding achievement. The practice had been under significant pressure at the time of both inspections due to the enforced closure of our Okement Surgery.
The outcome of this report is due to the dedication and commitment from our practice team and the wonderful feedback received from our patients.
The inspectors noted areas of outstanding achievement which included identification of carers, the offer of the carers health checks and the pioneering of the pharmacist role in GP practice.

Why is Winkleigh Surgery no longer registered with CQC?
Winkleigh Surgery had previously been registered as a separate provider location as we were seeing patients from Okehampton and North Tawton. Following the closure of Okement Surgery, Winkleigh registration has now returned to its original status, a branch surgery under the Wallingbrook Health Centre location.
