SSP practice continues to be Outstanding

Healthcare inspectors agree that our Salford GP practice continues to give Outstanding care to its patients.

The Care Quality Commission (CQC) has recently reviewed how The Height General Practice operates and is happy to continue to rate the quality of its services as ‘Outstanding’.

The SSP Health practice, in Irlams o’ th’ Height, was first given an Outstanding rating by the CQC in 2017, in a glowing report the organisation issued after inspecting the care the surgery provides to patients.

Inspectors picked out ‘Outstanding’ aspects, including that the practice had launched its own food bank, collecting products for people facing hardship and helping thousands of people to feed themselves.

Inspectors also praised the surgery for recognising that social isolation and loneliness were key issues for some patients, which were eased by the practice providing transport to the surgery and organising social events.

Last year, the Bolton Road practice also achieved 100% in its QoF good practice results and was awarded Gold in the Pride In Practice accreditation scheme, which highlights excellence in care for the LGBTQ community.

Practice Manager Holly Walsh said: “We are really pleased that the Outstanding rating at our practice has been extended by the CQC after it reviewed our services.

“At The Height General Practice, all our staff pride themselves on going the extra mile for our patients and the people we serve can rest assured that they are getting the very best healthcare possible at our surgery.

“We are overjoyed that this continues to be recognised by the inspectors.”
