How the MDU can help

GP appointment

The MDU has a range of available resources that can guide you through the medico-legal aspects of CQC compliance.

We have published a number of articles on our website which will help you prepare for a CQC inspection and we are happy to provide practices with individual medico-legal advice in helping them to prepare. 

We can also advise you on drawing up an action plan, commenting on a draft inspection report or if you wish to challenge a report. Reports are made public and if there is media interest in an adverse finding our press office can advise you on responding to journalists.

24-hour medico-legal advice line

For any queries about CQC compliance, call our 24-hour medico-legal advice line which is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Podcasts on CQC-related subjects

Discover our free podcasts such as medical records, changes to employment law and confidentiality and the police.
