Revealed: How GPs have spent millions preparing for CQC registration


There is a huge difference between Registration and actual compliance. Most of the "CQC requirements" have already been part of the law for many many many years. If you had been compliant with all these in the first place, the registration would have been a piece of cake, and would have/should have cost you "Nada". What this survey doesn't show is that most practices have spent time, effort, and money on updating policies NOT on processes for actual day to day quality assurance and compliance ... which should have been in place already, CQC or no CQC. Day to day safety is what any regulator would be looking for. It is about being able to show that you operate safely every single day of the year. DON'T waste money on registration (Oops too late!) DO spend it on making your processes more efficient and save money long term
