Dentists disapprove of recent CQC report

Last week the Care Quality Commission (CQC) released a report on the state of the health and adult social care in England, detailing where improvements need to be made and highlighting a general overview of the industry.

Despite the review, dentists have criticised the CQC in a report published by the House of Commons Health Select Committee. Criticisms have occurred due to the CQC reportedly expecting small dental practices to implement processes only feasible by large hospitals and creating unrealistic implementation dates.

MPs have also criticised the report over the poor handling of registering dental professionals. The CQC prioritised the administrative task rather than focusing on the core function of the report, inspecting health institutions.

As Dr John Milne, Chair of the BDA’s General Dental Practice Committee, further explains:

“This report is a damning indictment of the debacle that has been the registration of dentists by the Care Quality Commission. It reflects the BDA’s own criticisms, pointing to flaws in the timing and methodology of dental registration, and begs serious questions about a farcical process that dentists have been forced to endure.”
