GP practice closed down by CQC while waiting for vulnerable practice support


CQC is itself a new and inept organisation. they are in formulation of tick box exercises which they themselves are not sure of. The visit is itself a lottery as it will depend what and which inspectors are there on the day. The is very little evidence that much is received in these piecemeal inspections except to add to loads of bureaucracy after which they will flash their figures as result of their work. How that will improve care or quality even the CQC will not be able to tell you. the joy is more with inspectors in team who have had few days training and no other background of General practice.
