NHS needs better regulation30th January 2012
The chief of the NHS Federation, Mike Farrar, has told the Care Quality Commission inquiry that the health services requires better regulation and not "a simplistic race for more inspection".
Speaking to the inquiry, Mr Farrar said: "We want an effective and intelligent regulator that focuses its attention where it is most needed,” and went on: “It is clear the regulator needs to do more to earn confidence. Our members are telling us that the CQC is not always proportionate in its approach and its model of regulation is too generic. We hear inspectors can be inconsistent, processes bureaucratic and guidance inadequate."
