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.
