Is hospitals watchdog up to the job?

HEALTH bosses in Worcestershire have questioned if a national watchdog is up to the task.

The Care Quality Commission is the national health and social care watchdog which makes sure hospitals and care homes are performing well enough.

It was the CQC which published a damning report into two wards at the Alexandra Hospital in Redditch in May which raised “major” concerns about patients having enough to eat and drink.

But the tables were turned at a board meeting of NHS Worcestershire at Kidderminster Town Hall when health chiefs asked if the CQC was itself fit for purpose.

My comment: Read all articles about the Care Quality Commission on this blog and I think you will agree with me that they are not fit for purpose.
