Abbey Meads GP practice in special measures after damning report highlights safety fears

A  CQC report on Abbey Meads, GP practice in Swindon, has said urgent overall improvement is needed and rated it “inadequate”; this is the fifth IMH-managed Swindon surgery to receive a damning CQC report.

The GP practice in Abbey Meads Village Centre has been placed into special measures after inspectors found significant issues with leadership, patient safety, service quality, and governance.

The practice did not have clear systems in place to keep patients safe or managing medicines safely. Management were unable to show that staff had the skills, knowledge and experience to carry out their roles and the practice was not always acting on accurate information to keep people safe or make improvements when things went wrong.
