'Preparing for CQC registration cost my practice £26,000'


CQC didn't create the rules - they just have to enforce them. If you want to complain to someone, complain to HSE, DH, or whatever government body decided you needed wheelchair ramps, automatic door openers, etc... CQC is just the messenger in all this - they didn't just decide one morning at a board meeting "Hey, I know, let's regulate GPs as well as everyone else!". This (along with the rules you managed to flout for 18 years) was foist upon them by Whitehall.
