New Style Dental Inspections for CQC

The CQC have been testing out their new approach of inspecting dental practices recently. On the 5th march they published their first reports on the quality of care provided by 12 practices.

In line with CQC's other inspections, the reports focus on whether services provided are safe, effective, caring, responsive and well led. The CQC will use their experiences from these new inspections, along with feedback from a recent consultation, to further develop their approach which will then be fully implemented from 1 April.

Unlike other regulated sectors, primary care dental services will not be given a rating in 2015/16. Over the next year the CQC plans to inspect 10 per cent of England’s 10,000 dental practices.

A press release provided by the CQC: 'CQC inspectors publish new-style reports on 12 dental practices' provides a list of the dental practices inspected.
