AUKUH response to the Care Quality Commission on Reviews 2009/10
12 March 2009
The Association of UK University Hospitals (AUKUH) have responded to the Care Quality Commission consultation and overall is supportive of the integrated approach to regulation taken by the CQC.
AUKUH supports the intention to assess throughout a care pathway. Whilst generally supportive of the suggested special reviews, the detail is of critical importance. The consultation paper is specifically focused on 2009/10 as a year of transition, but AUKUH is concerned that this signals a major shift in regulation from 2010/11.
