Care Quality Commission (CQC)

The independent regulator of health and social care services in England. They

  • make sure that health and social care services provide people with safe, effective, compassionate, high–quality care
  • monitor, inspect and regulate services to make sure fundamental standards of quality and safety are met
  • publish what they find, including performance ratings to help people choose care

From 01 April 2015, care homes which have been awarded CQC ratings must display their most up to date ratings in their premises and on the website(s) where the services are described.
