Bradford medical practice celebrates new and improved rating

Following an inspection carried out last month (July), the Avicenna Medical Practice has been rated as ‘Good’ by the Care Quality Commission (CQC).

This follows a previous ‘Inadequate’ rating.

The CQC’s inspectors found that the Barkerend based practice, which provides primary medical care services to its registered list of over 7,000 patients, provides high quality, safe, caring and well-led care to its patients.


Dr Akram Khan, senior partner, said: “We are delighted to have received this Good rating from the CQC. It’s testament to the great care our team provide our patients with, as well as the relationship we have with our patients.

“The whole team has put a huge amount of hard work and determination into improving our rating to the one awarded. We have done this through providing the highest quality safe services to our patients.”

The full CQC report on the Avicenna Medical Practice is available via the CQC website and highlights the good rating achieved by the practice in providing safe, caring, responsive, effective and well-led services to their patients.

“We are delighted the CQC has recognised the work we have done to improve our rating to ‘Good’,” added Dr Khan.

“Our patients are at the heart of everything we do and we are continually looking at where we can improve.”

The practice is part of NHS Bradford City Clinical Commissioning Group, which was equally delighted with the outcome of the CQC’s report.

Dr Sohail Abbas, Clinical Chair of Bradford City Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), said: “We know how hard the practice team has worked to ensure they obtained their ‘Good’ rating and we are delighted for them.

“General practice is challenging at the best of times, so it’s great to see Avicenna continuing to improve the healthcare for the residents of Bradford.”
