A Simpler Way to Ensure CQC for GP Practices’ Compliance

Running a primary care business is now more complex than it has ever been before. In the case of general practitioners this is in part due to the need to achieve CQC registration and meet ongoing compliance requirements.

Time is precious and the last thing that GPs want is to get caught up in the messy and time consuming business of researching, writing and reviewing policies and procedures for CQC compliance. Even when a practice lead hands this process over to the practice manager it just shifts the problem to someone else who may be equally time poor.

A number of features and benefits enable the processes that support compliance to be efficiently and effectively carried out, allowing GPs and practice managers to devote their time to more service user-centric activities.

The General Practitioner Management System provides the policies and procedures needed for each key area of managing a busy general practice. This enables you to operate and manage your surgery within the regulations.

The QCS management system is written and maintained by compliance experts with experience of specific areas including general practice. QCS provides updates which ensures your compliance keeps in step with changes to CQC and DoH guidance or legislative instruments and that procedures reflect best practice. In an era of increasing bureaucracy and red-tape QCS strives to make compliance activity quicker, smarter and simpler.

It covers the 8 key ‘pillars’ of clinical governance ; Staff Management, Public and Patient Involvement, Risk Management,  Clinical Effectiveness, Education and Training, Information Management (and IT), Audit and Clinical Governance Policies

Case Studies

Many of our clients choose to go ‘on the record’, telling the story of why they selected QCS to solve their problems and how it has helped them to take control of compliance.

  • Upbeat Company

    The quality of service this company provides is excellent. They are always willing to give advise and assistance by telephone or email. There emails are always followed up immediately. The policy updates are timely. The quality of the paperwork is excellent. However they keep saying we are not compliant. As the policies are used centrally to update and amend our own policies it is not appropriate for NWCS to fill in all the documentation as it pertains to a particular 'home'. we did fill in one form at the begining and then because this was late in being submitted QCS had changed the format and there were more details to fill in which as I have indicated were not applicable for the way we use the policies sent to us. Also have QCS stopped posting policies are we now expected to download them. No information was sent to explain that this would be the case in future. Ann Crisp
