What to do if you get a CQC notice of proposal
A CQC Notice of Proposal is a formal letter sent by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) to a healthcare provider to inform them that they are considering taking a specific action, such as issuing a warning or suspending their license.
If you receive a Notice of Proposal from the CQC, it is crucial to carefully review the letter and understand the reasons for the proposed action.
If you disagree with the proposed action, you have the right to make representations to the CQC and provide evidence to support your case.
You can do this by responding to the Notice of Proposal in writing and providing any relevant information or evidence you believe will support your case.
It is essential to respond to a Notice of Proposal as soon as possible, as failure to do so may result in the CQC taking the proposed action without considering your representations.
The CQC takes compliance and the quality of healthcare provision seriously, so it is important to take any Notice of Proposal seriously and respond appropriately.
