CQC proposes ‘special measures’ framework for GPs

CQC will introduce a “special measures” framework for GPs from October 2014.

CQC and NHS England area teams will work together to ensure a timely and coordinated response to GP practices that are providing inadequate care.

CQC has already started rating England’s 8,000 NHS GP practices either as outstanding, good, in need of improvement or inadequate. Initially this will be a shadow special measures regime where CQC will be testing its approach.
