CQC will put 'inadequate' GP practices immediately into special measures

Comment

How can I find out if my GP practice is in danger of needing special measures? Reason being that I am moving house and my practice was listed as being one of 3 that serviced the area. I wanted to stay with this practice having biuilt up a relationship with my GP. At first he was doubtful that other partners would agree!! I contacted Healthwatch North Tyneside and my MP. Within 2 days we were told that we could, in fact stay with them. Wondering why? It is Wideopen medical centre who also have a surgery in nearby Dudley. We are moving from Seaton Burn, North Tyneside to Camperdown North Tyneside.
