Politicains are constantly telling the voting public that Health is the most important issue on their agenda. Here is a chance to prove it by ensuring that monies are not swallowed up by beurocracy but directed at the patient/health professional interface.
The modern phrase, which I hate, is "this is a no brainer". This is regulation for regulation sake. GDP's have more than a sufficiency of regulation. In times of austerity (in fact all the time) we should be looking at efficiency savings, and since most, if not all of this CQC work ,will be duplication, there is no perceived benefit to the public or the profession in pursuing this.
