CQC or 'Care Quality Commision', represents a duplication of existing legislation.

Large organisations like hospitals may employ a legal team to deal with 'red tape', but most small dental practices consist of clinical teams of a dentist and dental nurse supported by a receptionist. The legislation about to be implemented was designed for hospitals etc, but dental practices are caught up in the net.

The CQC should disregard dental practices which already comply with the regulations under the GDC remit.

Why is this idea important?


There is no obvious benefit but we are now going to incur extra costs which will be reflected in a few percent points increase in dental charges with knock on effects on inflation.
