The CQC’s role is to inspect and regulate GP practices, including those practices run by single-handed GPs. The CQC regulates at a provider level and may remove a practice’s registration where care is not meeting the required standard. Actions taken against an individual GP would be the responsibility of NHS England for contractual issues and the General Medical Council for professional issues.</p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Secretary of State for Health has said “The Care Quality Commission’s (CQC) State of Health and Adult Social Care in England 2013-14 report highlights examples of excellent care but it also exposes unacceptable levels of variation. It also confirms that the NHS has seen a period of “hard realities and rapid change” following the scandal at Mid Staffordshire NHS Foundation Trust. We need to keep building on this to ensure greater cultural change, continuing transparency and a focus on safety to drive up standards of care across the country.”</p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Regulatory decisions on the use of genetically modified (GM) products are taken collectively at EU level. The EU has authorised the marketing of over forty different types of GM crop as imported food or feed products, and GM soya in particular is being widely used in the UK and across the EU as an animal feed ingredient. However only one type of GM crop is approved for commercial planting in the EU, an insect-resistant maize of no practical interest for UK farmers. That authorisation was granted in 1998, since when the EU has struggled to reach decisions on GM cultivation because of different views among the Member States. A proposal is being discussed that should make it easier to reach EU decisions, by giving Member States more national discretion to avoid GM cultivation in their own territory. The European Parliament is now considering the proposal and it could be adopted next year if the Parliament and Council can reach agreement on the specific provisions.</p><p> </p> more like this
