CQC seeks views on its new approach to regulating dental, independent healthcare and ambulance services
The Care Quality Commission (CQC) is asking people who run and use health and care services for views on the regulator’s plans for inspecting primary care dental services, and inspecting and rating ambulance and independent healthcare services.
Following the earlier roll-out of CQC’s new inspection approach for general practice, out-of-hours GP services, adult social care and in NHS acute hospitals, three consultations are launched to seek views on CQC’s plans for inspecting dental, ambulance and independent healthcare services.
