The Care Quality Commission is the independent regulator of health and adult social care services in England. They also protect the interests of people whose rights are restricted under the Mental Health Act.
To help improve and maintain the quality of services all health care providers must work to 28 set outcomes that ensures the best possible care is being offered to patients in the best possible environment.
Lowther Medical Centre as provider of healthcare to our patients works to these outcomes and have ascribed responsible leads to each outcome to ensure we continue to meet the set standards.
Lowther Medical Centre is a member of Copeland Primary Care Network which covers a registered patient population of circa 62,000. The network is made up of seven member practices namely Distington Group Practice, Fellview Healthcare, Lowther Medical Centre, Mansion House Surgery, Queen Street Surgery, Seascale Group Practice, Westcroft House Surgery. Copeland Primary Care Network has adopted a flat practice network structure where all seven practices are equal and employment contracts are shared across all seven member practices.
