As specialist dental lawyers, JFH Law contacted the CQC on 12th May, challenging the closure of private dental practices and the CQC’s regulatory powers to do so. The guidance was then subsequently changed on 19th May, to “confirm the current position”, a position JFH Law thinks accurately reflects the regulatory powers of the CQC.
JFH Law is now looking to bring a legal challenge against the CQC, asserting that they did not have the power to direct dental practices to close in the first place, as long as practices act safely and within the regulatory framework, and seeking to recover the losses practices occurred during this time of closure.
