Report has CQC running too soon

Your report 'Regulator plans risk profile for every GP' has the CQC running when we've only just started walking.

We heard at the end of March that we would register GP services from April 2011. GPs will of course be fully involved in any system we develop.

During the interview I described a general model of risk profiling we use for health and social care services - your report applied this to GP services when we have not.

From Baroness Young, chair, Care Quality Commission

Editor's note: Baroness Young is being a touch disingenuous. The whole context of the interview was about the regulation of GPs.
