CARE QUALITY COMMISS ION (CQC)
The practice had its inspection visit on Tuesday 17th December 2013 and was successfully found to be compliant. The Inspector spoke to both patients and staff about their experiences and roles. This is good news for both patients and staff !
Merger - Stronger Together
Following on from the Patient Group Meeting held on Wed 5th November 2014. We would like to announce that Shaftesbury Medical Centre is seeking a Practice Merger with Roxbourne Medical Centre.
LATEST UPDATE: Since the meeting it has now been decided that we will be retaining two sites. BOTH SITES WILL REMAIN OPEN and fully functional.
All patients will remain registered with the GP Partners Dr Musa and Dr Nizamuddin and the care of our patients will continue at this site with the eventual option of also being seen by a Doctor at the Roxbourne Site.
There are several reasons for this merger including improving Patient Access and Patient Services and Better Premises.
Harrow CCG are aware of this situation and have given us their support.
We will be holding further Patient Group Meetings to keep you updated and for the opportunity to discuss any issues with us. If you wish to e-mail us any question please send them to: Shaftesburymedical.firstname.lastname@example.org
As a Practice we very much appreciate and welcome your support and input.
Dr Nizamuddin & Dr Musa

Training and Teaching
Here at Shaftesbury Medical Centre we have a keen interest in the teaching and training of future healthcare professionals. Dr Musa teaches medical students from Imperial Medical School. Dr Nizamuddin teaches medical students from Royal London & St Bartholomew's Medical School.
We thank all the patients who have kindly agreed to participate in the teaching and training of our students. Consent will always be obtained from our patients and patient choice will be adhered to.
We have also been approved as a GP Training Practice by the London Deanery (Health Education North West London) to train qualified doctors training to become GPs. Dr Musa is the approved GP Trainer for the Northwick Park GP Training Scheme. Both Dr Musa and the Practice have to undertake re-approval visits periodically to maintain Training Status and ensure that standards are being met.
