GP Practice Safety – A retained Health and Safety Service
GP Practice Safety – This service is designed to assist the Practice Manager and help not only to achieve health and safety compliance but also to provide a clear demonstration of compliance.
CQC inspections – The CQC will want to see evidence that practices are meeting health and safety standards during an inspection. We help to prepare you for this.
Keeping people Safe – As well as helping you to comply with the law, we help you to keep people (including staff and patients) from harm.
We work with you – We visit you, to discuss your issues, and provide a simple report, and we help you address any problems.
A Testimonial for our GP Practice Safety services – It has been a pleasure to work with LRB Consulting. Following their visits, we are more confident with regards to health and safety in our workplace – for both staff, patients, and visitors. Their helpful and friendly approach has made a significant improvement to our documentation and has prepared us for external audits, for example, a CQC inspection.
