Medicare Unit Surgery is regulated by the Care Quality Commission. The CQC's job is to check whether hospitals, care homes, GPs, dentists and services in your home are meeting national standards.
They do this by inspecting services and publishing their findings, helping people to make choices about the care they receive.

The CQC visited us in February 2017 and the following report summary was published:
