Under the Health and Social Care Act (2008), from 1 April 2013 all providers of NHS general practice (and other primary medical services) must be registered with the Care Quality Commission (CQC).

People have a right to expect safe, high quality care. As the regulator of health and social care in England, CQC plays a vital role in making sure that care services meet those expectations.

All registered GP providers are now legally required to meet the national standards of quality and safety.
