High praise for Skipton GP practice

Dyneley House Surgery in Skipton has been rated as 'outstanding' by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) - making it one of the best GP practices in the country.

The practice, which is part of NHS Airedale, Wharfedale and Craven Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), is one of the latest practices to achieve the top rating in the CQC's primary care inspection programme.

Antony Radley, Practice Manager at Dyneley House Surgery, said: "We believe that by working as a team with a shared vision, we can really make a difference for our patients. 

"Our partners and staff work extremely hard to provide high-quality care and services to all our patients and their dedication is paramount in achieving this rating.

"We would like to thank our Patient Participation Group, patients and our partners from the voluntary and community services who have actively engaged with us and supported our education programmes to help us deliver better health outcomes for all our patients."

Dr Colin Renwick, Clinical Chair of NHS Airedale, Wharfedale and Craven CCG, added: "This is a fantastic achievement for the practice and is a reflection of its commitment to providing excellent services for its patients. 

"I know that the staff work very hard and everyone at the practice has a real passion for engaging with the local communities to ensure their health needs are met.

"Everybody at the practice really deserves to be recognised as 'outstanding' and should be very proud of this rating by the CQC."

Professor Steve Field, Chief Inspector of General Practice, said: "The GPs and staff at Dyneley House Surgery have demonstrated a real commitment to their patients and I am delighted to highlight the exceptional service they are providing."

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