The practice registration with the CQC is revised as we are part of Our Health Partnership.
The CQC is an independent regulator of all health and social care services in England. their job is to ensure that all care provided amongst others, hospitals, dentist, care homes and GP primary care practices all meet national standards of quality.
The national standards cover all aspects of care including:
- Treating people with dignity and respect.
- Making sure that the environment is clean and safe.
- Managing and staffing services.
Once registered GP practices will receive unannounced inspections and will be continually monitored to ensure that they are meeting national standards.
During an inspection:
- Patients will be asked about their experiences of receiving care.
- Inspectors will talk to clinical staff.
- Check that the right systems and processes are in place.
- Look for evidence that care isn't meeting national standards.
Look out for more information on the Care Quality Commission around reception.
