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.
