Care Quality Commission

Have you seen this?

Welcome to the Care Quality Commission - the new independent regulator of health, mental health and social care
The Care Quality Commission (CQC) launches today bringing together the independent regulation of health and adult social care in England.
We will build on the work of our predecessors, the Commission for Social Care Inspection, the Healthcare Commission and the Mental Health Act Commission, but will bring a distinctive approach - common quality standards across health and social care for the first time and a new focus on how well health and social services work together. Above all, we will put the rights and interests of people who use services and their carers at the heart of our work.
We will share our wealth of knowledge and expertise on health and social care services with you. We will work to improve services across health and adult social care and we will act swiftly to remedy bad practice.
We look forward to working with you and will continue to keep you informed about our work.
