New look CQC inspections will be 'stressful and expensive'


Have a look at the consultation and appendices: I have absolutely no idea what practices need to do to get an "excellent" grade: what is worse, I cannot see how CQC inspectors will know either! What *is* clear is that it will cost an arm and a leg - and if, as I understand, costs will be born by those regulated, I assume that this will come from GP funding - reducing patient care services even further!
