CQC – Putting the patients first
Under the Health and Social Care Act (2008), from 1 April 2013 all providers of NHS general practice (and other primary medical services) must be registered with the Care Quality Commission (CQC). People have a right to expect safe, high quality care. All registered GP providers are now legally required to meet the national standards of quality and safety.
Now that we are registered with CQC, there are some important things you, our Patients, need to be aware of. We will be putting information in our surgeries and this will help highlight to you what CQC does, and how you can contact them.

The most important thing for us all to remember about the work that we do, is who we are doing this for – out patients.
For your own information you can see our CQC Registration Document if you wish to.
