Baroness Young says she has yet to be convinced by plans to include GP regulation of primary care services

The ongoing debate as to how best to regulate GP practices has been joined by the new chair of the Care Quality Commission (CQC).

Baroness Young told the Health Service Journal that she has yet to be convinced by government plans for her department to include GP regulation of primary care services as set out in the Health and Social Care Bill.

Once established, the CQC will take on the work of the Healthcare Commission, the Commission for Social Care Inspection and the Mental Health Act Commission.
