The English health and social care regulator, the Care Quality Commission (CQC), inspected the Forbury Clinic at 11 Kendrick Road in October 2017 and found it safe, effective, caring, responsive and well-led.
The Kendrick Road surgery is part of the private Forbury Clinic, which also has a surgery on nearby Craven Road.
Patients at the clinic told the CQC inspectors that they had very positive experiences of the service and felt they were treated with respect, compassion and dignity.
A CQC inspection in September 2014 had found breaches in regulations about the safe delivery of services and had raised concerns about staff recruitment practices. The CQC states that the clinic is now operating safe systems for staff recruitment.
The Forbury Clinic, which is owned by Berkshire Health Ltd, specialises in urology, spinal surgery, plastic surgery, gynaecology, physiotherapy, ear, nose and throat surgery, eye surgery, oncology, medical imaging, antenatal scanning, hand surgery, bariatric surgery, general surgery, speech therapy and ophthalmology.
