CQC reviewing all data publications to 'prevent recurrence of mistakes'


The first mistake was to call it "Intelligent" monitoring. The error was in fact first spotted by one of our patients who was surprised at our low rating. It was HE who examined CQC's methodology, spotted the errors, and then alerted the BBC. Both CQC and the BBC tried to claim the credit for spotting the mistake but it was in fact a humble member of the public. We jumped up 2 points and he earned our grateful thanks and a bottle of champagne. The whole profession is in his debt.
