CQC and CAS alerts
From 1 October 2019, MHRA will send Central Alerting System (CAS) alerts directly to GP practices, replacing any local arrangements previously in place. All GP practices in England are contractually required (From 1st October 2019 GMS/PMS Regulation 74G/67G) to register to receive CAS alerts directly from the MHRA.
CQC, will on inspection be checking on the mechanisms around CAS alerts.
We have an excellent example below of a logging sheet for this purpose. We give thanks and credit to our colleagues at Testvale Surgery for sharing with us a copy of this log they have created. Click here if you wish to download and use for your practice.
