Taking the pain out of CQC registration and compliance

Two GP practices face closure by the
as they fail to hit key quality and safety standards.
Care Quality Commission
(CQC) has the right to “refuse any provider who is not fit to deliver care services.”
The refused practices have been given a ‘proposal to refuse’ and will have 28 days to challenge the CQC’s decision.
The CQC will not release the names of the GP practices.
CQC head of registration, Adrian Hughes said: “We look forward to registering all providers who meet the criteria in time for the deadline.
“We are delighted with how well GP registration is going. A great deal of work went into designing the registration process and we are glad to see this has paid off.”
Changes to regulation mean all service providers in England must register with the CQC, who will inspect GP practices to check they meet government standards.
Since the application process began in July 2012, 7,589 applications have been received, 95% of the expected applications.
The other 5% are providers who have yet to make an application.
More than 50% of providers have already received their certificates of registration, the rest will get them by 31 March 2013.
Earlier in January,
Management in Practice
reported that MPs said primary care registration would be “challenging’ following the experience of dental registration.
GP registration is the last phase of registering health and social care services, as well as hospitals, ambulances, dentists and mental health services.
