Exclusive: GPs demand CQC compensation...

5 December 2014, GP Online

Two out of five GPs say the CQC should compensate practices it has publicly labelled 'high risk' if they are later rated 'good' or 'outstanding'.

Wessex LMCs chief executive Dr Nigel Watson said: ‘We cover about 500 practices. The ones in band 1 are not practices I would be concerned about.’

The GP magazine survey of 600 GPs found that 38% believe the CQC should offer financial compensation to practices branded high risk if they are later found to be ‘outstanding’ or ‘good’. 

An overwhelming majority say cases such as this should trigger a formal apology from the watchdog and it should be forced to contact patients to explain. One in 10 GP partners said their practice faced negative publicity as a result of the CQC publishing its risk scores.
