The masterclass will be an interactive session with practical guidance to enable participants to map the techniques onto their own practice – and incorporates the CQC Inspection changes applicable from April last year. Case studies will be used to provide tips and insights on ‘good practice’ and also ‘inadequate’ General Practice. The aim is to provide a practical usable framework for CQC compliance.
