First Practice Management
- Posted Monday September 30, 2013
GP Practices and other primary medical services have been registered with the Care Quality Commission (CQC) since April 2013. Since then, practices up and down the country have undergone CQC inspections and undergone different experiences.
Following on from the FPM CQC Roadshows held in Manchester and Birmingham earlier this year, our next roadshow in London will look at how CQC inspections have progressed over 2013, and take a closer look at the experiences of a GP practice manager. The agenda for the roadshow also includes an insight into the CQC inspections of the dental practice sector to see what is done differently and what can be learned. This half-day event is free, but interested delegates must register their details on the guestlist by filling in the form on the First Practice Management website.

Feedback from the Manchester FPM CQC Roadshow:
“I recently attended the FPM CQC roadshow in Manchester and found the event extremely helpful. It gave a good overview of the process and there was very valuable input from a manager of a dental organisation who had taken part in several visits so was able to give accurate details about the process.” Ruth Long, FPM Recruitment & Consultancy Business Manager.
