CQC Support and Guidance Guidance
CQC Guidance - Mandatory Training
The CQC are often asked whether they set out mandatory training requirements for GP practices – The CQC does not have a list of mandatory training for members of the GP practice team. This is because exact training requirements will depend on the role and specific responsibilities of practices and the needs of the people using the service.
Ultimately the practice is responsible for determining what mandatory, and additional, training staff need to meet the needs of their patients.
