Dorset Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG)


Clinical Commissioning Groups are NHS organisations which plan, manage and fund local services to meet the needs of their local population. They are led by local GP's. They understand what services are needed because they are usually the first port of call for people when they have a health concern.

The Practice uses the Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) formulary for prescribing of medicines, appliances and dressings. The formulary can be accessed here:
Dorset CCG - Pan Dorset Formulary

Care Quality Commission (CQC)

 Regulated by the CQC

The Care Quality Commission (CQC) is the independent regulator of health and adult social care in England. CQC monitors, inspects and regulates services to make sure that they meet fundamental standards of quality and safety, and publishes inspection reports and performance ratings to help people choose care. Find out more at

Our registration information for each of our surgeries can be seen on the CQC website under The Adam Practice.

There are also links on these pages for you to share your experiences with the CQC, however if you have a complaint about your surgery we would ask that you contact us first via our complaints system to see if we can resolve your problems.


The practice is assessed on a number of standards including safeguarding, care and welfare of patients, staffing, management and premises. We are always looking at ways we can improve these areas to ensure that we meet the standards and would encourage any patients to contact us if they feel we are not achieving in any areas of care.



The CQC carried out an announced comprehensive inspection at The Adam Practice on 23rd and 24th January 2019 as part of their inspection programme.
They have rated the practice as OUTSTANDING overall.

Putting Patients First:
The most important thing to note about CQC is that the work they require us to do to meet the standards is to ensure a continued high standard of care for you our patients and not just to provide another layer of bureaucracy.
