The busy Market Harborough Medical Centre has been told it “requires improvement” in some areas by independent health regulator the Care Quality 
Commission.

The Centre, on Coventry Road, requires improvement on safety and leadership, the report claims.

But it was rated “good” on providing effective services, “good” on providing caring services and “good” on being responsive to people’s needs.

And in a patients’ survey, 91 per cent of patients described their overall experience of the surgery as fairly good or very good, which is above the national average.

And 80 per cent said they would recommend the surgery to someone who has just moved to the area, again above the national average.

The CQC said areas the centre must look at again, included systems in its dispensary, such as the process for handling repeat prescriptions.

Market Harborough Medical Centre is part of The Market Harborough and Bosworth Partnership. It is a GP practice which provides a range of primary medical services to around 24,300 patients.
