Albert Road Surgery


Our Practice is highly patient focused and we aim to deliver the best care for our patients by combining the skills of the practice team with that of other healthcare professionals and voluntary organisations where appropriate.
We provide modern health care facilities and focus on continually improving the health of our patients and residents of the community.
Once registered, patients and healthcare professionals work together to ensure the most appropriate care is provided.

CQC Rating

We are disappointed by this rating, but we take the inspectors’ concerns very seriously and have a clear plan in place to improve our systems and make the necessary changes.
The inspectors noted that our staff provide a caring and responsive service to patients, but we are determined to resolve all the issues that have been raised, which mainly relate to systems and processes, and areas like staff training.
We have already made progress in a number of areas, and we are confident that we can meet the inspectors’ requirements over the coming months.
In the meantime, we would like to reassure patients that the surgery remains open and we are committed to providing a high quality service for our community.
If any of our patients have concerns, we would encourage them to speak to one of our practice team who will be happy to help.
