Scandalous rise in Care Quality Commission fees will take funding away from patient care

GP leaders have warned that proposals to increase Care Quality Commission (CQC) fees in England by as much as seventy five per cent are “scandalous” and will take funding away from frontline patient care.

The new fee increases for GP practices was announced today as part of a wider review of the CQC’s funding arrangements. The burden falling on general practice of these changes will rise from £21.3 million to £37.5 million per year.
