The Marisco Medical Practice based in Mablethorpe and Sutton on Sea has been branded as ‘requiring improvement’ following a report published by the Care Quality Commission.

Following recent inspections by specialist teams, 42 practices in Britain have been rated as ‘Good’, one has been rated as ‘Outstanding’, and seven have been rated ‘Requires Improvement.’

Under CQC’s new programme of inspections, all of England’s GP practices are being given a rating according to whether they are safe, effective, caring, responsive and well led.

Professor Nigel Sparrow, CQC’s Senior National GP Advisor said: “We know that the vast majority of England’s GPs are providing a service which is safe, effective, caring, responsive and well led.

“If that is what we find on inspection - we give it a rating of Good, and I congratulate the GPs and staff in these practices.

“Patients should be able to expect high quality and consistent care from every GP practice.

“Where we have required improvement, we will expect the practice to take the necessary steps to address the issue, and we will return at a later date to check that those improvements have been made.”
