Video: Health Inspectors finds maggots in surgery


Inspectors have uncovered a catalogue of failings at some GP practices, with medicines stored in a way that puts children and patients at risk of infection and rooms so dirty they had maggots. The Care Quality Commission (CQC) health regulator carried out inspections at 1,000 practices across England and found examples of "very poor care" that put patients at risk. Inspectors found maggots and dirty conditions in one surgery, while in another consulting rooms had no doors and people could hear what was being said to the GP.
