We provide support for members' health, welfare and careers & we understand the challenges of working in General Practice.
We represent practices on bodies including NHS England regional team, Clinical Commissioning groups, Public Health, Local Authorities, Health Watch and the Care Quality Commission.

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.
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.
