CQC issues closure notices to two GP practices

Comment

If a practice closes because CQC have recommended refusal of registration (and I am sure this will not be done with undue cause - in these cases a lack of reponse and engagement) then responsibiiity for redundancy payments should lie with the GPs as the employer of the staff. Patients will expect a GP practice to attain certain standards. Where these are not maintained then the practice deserves to be closed. These standards will never stand still and it is normal part of running a business that things must change at the expense of the business. Just go and ask any 'normal' business not molly codeld like a GP.
