I have just read in The Probe ( a dental publicaion) that CQC regulation is going to cover NHS and private practices.  I understood that registration was for private practices only. NHS practices already have strict guidelines and regulations to adhere by and we are all of course subject to GDC regulations.

NHS dental practices ae alreay battling with the increasing paperwork and red tape from PCTs.. Why do we need another regulatory body? I think we would better serve our patients by doing more dentistry and less paperwork.

How does more regulatory bodies cut unneccesary costs to the tax payer?

Why is this idea important?

CQC registration for all pratices increases administration time for already strained time fo NHS practices while we should be using this time to trea our patients, and are already regulatd by PCTs and the General Dental Council.
