CQC reveals £100m cost as final results show 90% of GP practices are 'good'


Is this value for money? Hhhmmmm A phenomenal amount of care could have been delivered with this cash A shift from 87% good and adequate to 90% is not a good return on the investment One could say that each percent shifted = 33,000,000 pounds I know it is not quite as simple as that... However it would have been entirely diffferent if the baseline had been 60% and it was now 90% This meagre shift in quality should be addressed by realising that the CQC regime should have a massive decrease in funding for GP inspections This should also be addressed by reducing all corporate costs to a bare minimum and in fact there would be a case to say that the CQC should be on the tightest block contract - similar to general practice... I honestly think that Primary Care has a case to self regulate at scale and take on that element of the CQC - it is a thought TimeToWakeUp
