Care Quality Commission (formerly Commission for Social Care Inspection)

Description:

The Care Quality Commission (CQC), formerly Commission for Social Care Inspection, is the health and social care regulator for England. They look at the overall picture of health and social care. Their aim is to ensure better care for everyone in hospital, in a care home and at home.

They regulate health and adult social care services, whether provided by the NHS, local authorities, private companies or voluntary organisations.

They make sure that essential common quality standards are being met where care is provided and they work towards the improvement of care services. They promote the rights and interests of people who use services and they have a wide range of enforcement powers to take action on their behalf if services are unacceptably poor.
