Re: Practices in poor areas are more likely to face CQC sanctions

Can you see correlates between the gist of this article and the conditions surrounding the case of Dr Bawa-Garba?

Furthermore, the CQC says the poorer conditions should not be obstacles to outstanding care. Where is outstanding care when the media is replete with negative headlines, when 70 A/E consultants wrote to the government recently that patients were dying in their corridors?! Have we lost insight?

Ivory towers and grassroots come to mind....
