The Care Quality Commission is the independent regulator of health and adult social care in England. The CQC make sure health and social care services provide people with safe, effective, compassionate, high-quality care and they encourage care services to improve.
The CQC monitor, inspect and regulate services to make sure they meet fundamental standards of quality and safety and they publish what they find, including performance ratings to help people choose care.
The CQC plan to inspect all NHS GP practices and GP out-of-hours services by April 2016. CQC inspectors use professional judgement, supported by objective measures and evidence, to assess services against five key questions:
- Are they safe?
- Are they effective?
- Are they caring?
- Are they responsive to people’s needs?
- Are they well-led?
CQC then rate services. These ratings will help people to compare services and to highlight where care is:
- requires improvement
