CQC could ditch annual inspections

6th September 2012

The Care Quality Commission is consulting on proposed changes to its inspection schedule.

It is looking at moving away from regular inspections of all regulated organisations and back towards a more risk-based model. The plan forms part of the regulator’s strategy for 2013-16 and comes a year after former chief executive Cynthia Bower announced the CQC would introduce annual inspections of all NHS providers and move away from a risk-based approach. But with no extra resources available any change would have to be introduced within the CQC’s current budget.

How many times did I say "INSPECTION is USELESS" in the last 5 years?

Nobody listens, nobody understands but we have to pay a USELESS Chief Executive £195,000 a year to MESS UP Social Care then "resigns" and get away with it.

I said clearly, if you want to check the QUALITY of CARE . . ASK THE RECIPIENTS. It's common sense that is little known among CHIEFS in Britain. You don't need a USELESS EXPENSIVE QUANGO to do that - you need an office within the Health Department operated by 100 Wizkids and a junior manager. Will the "new" Health Secretary listen to that now?
