Victoria Howes, GP registration design team leader at the CQC says that meeting nutritional needs outcome generally does not apply to GPs.

However, just because a practice does not provide nutrition to patients, this does not mean they should ignore it or tick it as non-compliant.

‘Non-compliance is a negative judgement. Most practices are not involved in nutritional need so they are able to declare compliance because as far as it applies to them, they do it,’ she says.
