Nexus Health Group - CQC report

    Nexus Health Group is a provider registered with CQC. The provider has eight sites with one sites used at the CQC registered location. The sites were previously independent GP practices which merged to become Nexus Health Group in 2016. The individual sites have retained the names from the historic partnerships.


    The CQC  carried out an inspection at the head office site, Princess Street Group Practice, on 1 November 2018 as part of our GP provider at scale pilot. This was to assess the centralised functions within Nexus Health Group. The individual sites were then  individually inspected :


    Princess Street Group Practice – 14 November 2018

    Surrey Docks Health Centre – 15 November 2018

    Aylesbury Medical Centre – 20 November 2018

    The Dun Cow Surgery – 21 November 2018

    Commercial way Surgery – 22 November 2018

    Decima Street Surgery & Artesian Health Centre - 28 November 2018


    The CQC have rated this practice as inadequate overall and requires improvement for all population groups. They based their judgement of the quality of care at this service on a combination of:

    • what was found when they inspected
    • information from  ongoing monitoring of data about services and
    • information from the provider, patients, the public and other organisations.


    The full CQC report is enclosed. The CCG have provided the enclosed and will be in attendance.
