Changes to CQC Inspections
On 18 August 2014, CQC published its report on how it plans to inspect dental practices from April 2015. CQC acknowledges that inspections need to focus more on dentistry and compliment the other dental regulators, rather than adding another layer of regulation with their current one size fits all approach. CQC has opened up a period of consultation inviting interested parties to comment with the BDA welcoming this initial report. CQC intend to pilot the new style of inspection from November 2014 with the view to having the new-style inspection in place from April 2015.
