Pulse in the Press: CQC inspections

Press Release

A Pulse survey showing that almost three-quarters of GPs believe that the CQC inspection process is not an effective way of identifying poorly performing practices has been featured on ITN’s News at Ten.

The snapshot poll of nearly 300 GPs showed that the profession had little confidence in the CQC, after claims about practices singled out by the regulator for criticism appeared to unravel.

Some 74% of GPs polled by Pulse said they do not believe that the CQC process was a fair way of assessing the quality of GP practices, while 70% said that it was not an effective way of identifying poor performers.
