A GP surgery in Bermondsey has been rated 'inadequate' and placed in special measures following an inspection by the Care Quality Commission.

New Mill Street Surgery placed in special measures by GP watchdog

Dr Alan Campion's practice in Wolseley Street, Bermondsey, was rated as 'inadequate' for being safe and well-led. It was rated 'requires improvement' for being effective, caring and responsive, following the inspection on 9 November last year.

At a previous inspection its rating was 'good'.

"It is disappointing that Dr Alan M Campion's practice is now 'inadequate' overall," said Professor Ursula Gallagher, CQC deputy chief inspector of GP practices.

"At a previous inspection its rating was 'good' and this is a clear deterioration in the service provided to the people of Bermondsey.

"While we did find staff treated patients with compassion, kindness, dignity and respect – there is a lot of improvement required.

"We are placing this service in special measures to help it with that improvement. Services placed in special measures will be re-inspected after a period of six months."

• We have invited the surgery to respond to the CQC's findings.
