PCSE surveys

The GPC has asked if practices and individual doctors could fill in their short surveys about PCSE to see how things have developed since our previous surveys in December 2017.

This will enable us to influence operational issues on your behalf and give us the hard data to substantiate the anecdotal evidence we also receive.

The deadline for responding to the surveys is noon, Friday 25 October. The greater response we have, the stronger our hand when discussing matters with NHS England. We really appreciate your help

New CQC provider information collection & annual regulatory review

Practices should have now received the attached letter. Practices rated good/outstanding will no longer be routinely inspected every two years, with their inspections changing to a maximum interval of five years. Instead these practices will have an annual regulatory review including the outcome of a “ provider information collection” (PIC) with an annual phone call to the practice, as a satisfactory IT solution for the PIC has yet to be developed.

That letter links through to updated guidance on CQC’s website: How we monitor GP practices and a new page on the questions that we’ll ask on the calls.

The GPC has worked closely with the CQC through various iterations of this in order to mitigate the impact on practices and our engagement has hopefully made the process considerably less burdensome and more fit for purpose.
