Delicious statement from the CQC
– see twitter for context. More tomorrow hopefully on Inside Health.
‘Rumours that practices will have to throw out toys from their waiting rooms have no basis in fact. This and other rumours such as carpets and soft furnishings in waiting rooms will have to be removed due to infection issues control are absolutely false. These are matters that are not likely to cause the CQC any concern, or lead to non-compliance with the essential standards of quality and safety. The Commission is aware that some PCTs have been saying this to practices and would encourage any one who has encountered this behaviour pass that information on to the CQC who will advise the PCT their advice is wrong.’
