This is an introduction to the process and timetable for registering providers of NHS general practice and other primary medical services with the Care Quality Commission by April 2013. By registering, providers give assurance to their patients that they are meeting the essential standards of quality and safety. Registration will also provide a way to address poorly-performing practices.
