The practice is registered with the Care Quality Commission (CQC).
The aim of CQC registration is to ensure that patients can expect all health and adult social care services to meet essential standards of quality. As part of this the CQC will occasionally undertake inspections at the practice. As part of an inspection CQC representatives will talk to patients as well as the practice team to gather information. To support this they may also access documents and records, including patient information.
The CQC’s code of practice states that it will only obtain personal information when it is necessary to do so. The CQC sets out a number of principles to consider people’s privacy, whilst ensuring it can perform its functions effectively.
