GPs under further scrutiny

14th August 2008

Baroness Young, the chair of the government's new health and social care regulator the Care Quality Commission, has revealed that it plans to use its powers to ensure GPs implement guidance issued by the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE).

Saying she wanted to be “tough but fair” with the profession, Baroness Young said the commission would look to enforce NICE guidance, national service frameworks and improve QOF standards in practices and that she wanted to bring GPs under its control from 2010/11.
