The Care Quality Commission (CQC) has found the quality of care provided by John Hampden Surgery to be Outstanding following an inspection in January 2016. The surgery joins The Hall Practice in Gerard’s Cross, which was the first surgery to receive the rating in Bucks.

The practice in Prestwood provides primary medical care services to approximately 3,300 patients. Inspectors found that the practice was providing a safe, caring, effective, responsive and well-led service that meets the needs of the population it serves.

Professor Steve Field, Chief Inspector of General Practice said:

I am delighted for the John Hampden Surgery to highlight the exceptional service at their practice. People are entitled to services which provide safe, effective, compassionate and high quality care. The GPs and staff at the surgery have worked hard to demonstrate a real commitment to their patients. All of this hard work and dedication pays off in making a real difference for their patients – which is why we have found this practice to be Outstanding. I hope other  practices will see this as a model for excellent care.

A full report of the inspection has now been published and is available at:
