Ballard and Tucker have recently had their first inspection by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) who are the government body responsible for regulating Hospitals, Care Homes, Dental Practices and Doctors, they perform a similar task to OFSTED, who the parents amongst you may be more familiar with.
We are very pleased to inform you that the practice passed the inspection with flying colours. Bob Ballard said, “this was our first CQC inspection, as they only started them last year and of course everyone was a little nervous and wondered if we had correctly crossed all the T?s and dotted all the I?s.”
But thankfully there was no need for any nerves, the practice passed quite easily. We don?t expect another inspection for a year or so now. You can view the inspectors report, if you visit the CQC?s website at http:// www.cqc.org.uk/public/news/our-latest-reports
