If only he had worn a suit and tie….

jackboots-2The CQC Borg will decide….

…..in 2014 when the inspectors last came. He had explained his philosophy and modus operandi, talking of medicine as an art form, “being a human being so patients feel they know well me enough to trust, while maintaining boundaries – compassionate detachment, I call it.”

“On that occasion,” he will recollect later, “they seemed concerned with seeing whether I was running a healthy, happy, well-functioning practice. They looked at feedback forms, talked to patients and made intuitive judgment.” They gave him a glowing report.

This time round…read here.

Michele Golden, head of inspections for London at the Care Quality Commission, says:

“We know, from various inspections, that patients will say how happy they are, and it may be that their doctor is a very nice person, but that doesn’t mean they understand if the system is actually unsafe for them.”

It would seem that Nanny may not always know best…but she holds all the cards.

There has never been a serious complaint against him, and he is exceptional in not having been called for a disciplinary hearing in all his 40 years as a GP.

Although he could continue practising as a doctor, his surgery must close with immediate effect.
