The Department of Health will no longer fund the CHRE

Two of Margaret Coats favourite quangos The Council for Health Care and Regulatory Excellence and the Appointments Commission are set for the chop. I can only hope my correspondence with the DOH in recent years and most recently outlining the CHREs refusal to criticise the GCC for failing to comply with the Data Protection Act and the GCCs indiscriminate use of Private Investigators provided the DOH with some evidence of how unnecessary the CHRE is.

Now all those complaints lodged against the GCC and their officers hidden away in CHRE files may start to surface. Margaret Coats will no longer be able to point to the glowing reports the GCC received from the CHRE as justification for her questionable regulatory methods.

The CHRE could survive if the regulators are prepared to pay for the service, in the current climate I can not see health regulators coming up with the money for what amounts to window dressing for bad regulation.

    I nearly gave myself a subluxation laughing too much; what will my world be like without these quangos?

    Hi Dazed,

    in your excitement you missed the last paragraph “The CHRE could survive if the regulators are prepared to pay for the service, in the current climate I can not see health regulators coming up with the money for what amounts to window dressing for bad regulation”

    Then again they might. Nevertheless any discussion around the function of the CHRE will open a can of worms.

    Explain why, when in 2006 you knew the Chiropractic Patients Association (CPA) had expressed the view that they had no confidence in the GCC did you arrange a meeting with Margaret Coats and Peter Dixon but not with the CPA?

    In the meantime my complaints about the GCCs use of private investigators and non compliance with the Data Protection Act are floating around the Department of Health and Privy Council.

    Richard, you are miss-reporting this – the link you posted to healthcare republic clearly states that CHRE will be removed fro the DoH and become SELF FUNDING. Now, call me a cynic, but I wonder where the funding is going to come from?

    Answers on the back of a postage stamp please boys and girls.

    Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition!

    My correspondence with both organisations was spectacularly unproductive. ‘Sycophants’ comes to mind.
