GP practices face a 'more light touch' regulation regime, CQC suggests

Comment

I know from other practices they had to do a formal presentation on why they are here (really?? GP services have been around for much longer then CQC and I think the whole nation, bar the CQC inspectors knows why GP surgeries are here). Some of them had to stay till 7pm in evening (so they were forced to breach T&C of contract with thei employees and also work beyond their contracted time). Partners had to be taken off surgeries in order to accommodate the inspection etc etc. They really need to be scrapped. In any other industry, they'll be taken to court for breaches of regulation and contract.
