Pilot accreditation alternative30th January 2008
The Royal College of General Practitioners is to pilot a new system of accreditation for primary care providers.
The initiative is to be piloted in 40 practices in England from April by the RCGP, which is developing an alternative to the ‚Äúlicence to operate‚Ä? required in 2010 under the new regulator, the Care Quality Commission (CQC). RCGP chairman Professor Sir Steve Field said the voluntary scheme will be evidence-based and professionally-led and could be introduced as early as 2009 if they prove a success.
