A York GP group has been put into special measures over failings including long waiting times for patients.

Unity Health, which has surgeries at Kimberlow Hill and Wenlock Terrace, has been rated ‘inadequate’ by inspection body the Care Quality Commission.

A CQC report said that Unity was not meeting national standards in a number of areas, including:

  • weaknesses in the management of potential risks to patient safety
  • arrangements for monitoring and reviewing prescribing
  • complaints handling
  • governance, and
  • effective systems to regularly monitor staff competency levels.
