New look CQC inspections will be 'stressful and expensive'


The cost of meeting CQC tickbox demands to pass premise inspection (think £10,000s), cost and time to pass revalidation (think scrutiny of NHS England RO), cost and time to run a GP surgery on a shoestring budget and cost of TUPE (protecting existing practice staff) may well be designed to ensure the timescale is met in time for the next general election.
