Exclusive: CQC plans rules on 'safe workload' for junior doctors

The Care Quality Commission has asked the medical royal colleges to draw up new “safe workload” standards for junior doctors, amid concerns they are still being given a workload that is unsafe, HSJ can reveal.
The CQC’s new chief inspector of hospitals, Ted Baker, also told HSJ in a wide ranging interview that:

  • The CQC had shifted trust chief executives behaviour from performance management to staff engagement
  • Dedicated staff would get the NHS through winter because NHS services and capacity had not kept pace with demand
