CQC issues closure notices to two GP practices


#1 We were told by the CQC staff at their London briefing that they were being used by the PCTs to impose PCT standards that CQC had not imposed (like carpets being ripped up). The PCTs have no say in your CQC registration. For things like carpets, CQC say you are bound by NHS Infection Control Standards, and if you meet these, you are compliant. My understanding of these is that carpet in a reception isn't an infection control risk
