This surgery has undertaken a security check of the premises and its contents in order to ensure that the organisation has adequate provision to safeguard and protect members of staff, patients, the building and other physical assets including sensitive and personal information A series of questions outlined in the attached document has resulted in the organisation acknowledging what measures it has in place to support any potential risks/hazards that may arise in the event of any incidents.
Each question has had its answer risk assessed using the following criteria:
- High Risk – Could have a serious impact on the delivery of patient care, the security of the building, its contents, staff and confidential/sensitive information (Action required)
- Medium Risk – Some impact on the delivery of patient care, the security of the building, its contents, staff and confidential/sensitive information security (Action to be considered)
- Low Risk – Short term disruption to service with low impact on the delivery of patient care, the security of the building, its contents, staff and confidential/sensitive information security (No action deemed necessary)
Action plans have been raised within this document to address any gaps or weaknesses in provision. Staff are aware of the need to report any areas of concern to the IG lead so that appropriate action can be taken.

REPAIRS & FAULTY EQUIPMENT
All staff need to be aware that any equipment fault or concern MUST IMMEDIATELY be reported to the Practice Manager or Assistant Practice Manager.
- The practice completes annually via an external supplier annual inspection and calibration of equipment. This is done at the same time as PAT electrical testing. Any failed items are immediately removed by them, repaired or replaced.
- Certain clinical equipment have separate contracts for servicing and repair. i.e. the ECG unit and defibrillator.
- The practice uses single use disposable items so does not autoclave..
- Building equipment: we have in place a service for planned maintenance contracted to an external provider. Ad hoc repairs, breakdowns are usually dealt with at cost per case by the same company. Lifts, fire alarm are separately contracted.
