CQC issues closure notices to two GP practices


Does anyone know what they 'failed' on? I am trying to get some guidelines about the requirements for the inside of my surgery in order to ascertain whether I really have to do all the seemingly ridiculous works that the PCT have ordered. (They admit that these are their own interpretation of the rules). The CQC guidelines are so vague and just talk about safety and suitability. I have a modern, purpose built twenty year old surgery and have been told to fit electric doors and rip up all the waiting room carpets. I can't get a definite clear answer from the CQC.
