CQC removes DMC Healthcare provider from five Medway surgeries

The private provider DMC Healthcare has had further enforcement action taken against it by a regulator after consistently failing to deliver a high standard of service to patients at its surgeries in Medway.

St Mary’s Island Surgery, in Chatham, was visited by Care Quality Commission (CQC) inspectors on Friday, July 10, who discovered numerous issues with the healthcare provided.

After finding what Kent and Medway’s clinical commissioning group referred to as “significant and ongoing issues of patients being exposed to the risk of harm,” the CQC made the decision to remove south London-based provider DMC Healthcare from five of the Medway sites which they have provided care from since April 1, 2019.
