Care Quality Commission

The Care Quality Commission (CQC) is responsible for regulating National and Minimal Standards and regulations for independent health care.

  • All private doctors of any sort in any kind of practice need to register by law.
  • This is an expensive, intensive time consuming process.
  • Each establishment must reflect the following:
  • Patient centred services
  • Patient Information
  • Accountability
  • Safety and Quality Assurance
  • Consistency

Dr Julian Kenyon for the Dove Clinic for Integrated Medicine has been through the Care Quality Commission Process to form a template, which the rest of the Society could use. This process also covers all complementary therapists. If any wish further advice on this, contact Julian Kenyon on . Advice is available at the Twyford/Winchester clinic of the Dove Clinic for Integrated Medicine, run by the Dove Clinic's Clinic Manager, Clare Robinson on how to go through the Care Quality Commission process. There will be a charge made for these sessions which will last half a day. It is suggested that groups may like to go along so that the change for the session can be divided amongst the group. Protocols and health and safety documents are available to members of the BSIM at a charge from the Dove Clinic for Integrated Medicine, to provide a template which would enable members to go through the Care Quality Commission process more easily.

Using this method, it would be possible for each doctor and complementary practitioner to register at minimal cost. The cost of registering for the Dove Clinic for Integrated Medicine, has been expensive, mostly with staff costs in excess of £65,000. This however, has provided a template which should enable each individual doctor and complementary therapist to register at relatively minimal cost.

The GMC will require Care Quality Commission Inspection by all member doctors in order to approve and appraisal process, which will in turn lead to re-validation.
