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


When I recently got out of GP a couple of years early. The CQC having undoubtedly helped swing my retirement-o-meter, I went to their web site to inform them. It took a long time to navigate their confusing descriptions and links. However I did my best and completed various forms. 6 months later the practice received an email acknowledgement and a message from a human saying that the form used was incorrect. After much searching I ended up at the same form but I couldn't access it because I no longer had the correct privileges. I therefore asked if they were sure that they were not correctly informed of my retirement from clinical work. Three weeks later an apology came saying that all was in order after all and they were sorry to have bothered me. Standards! What standards?
