The Care Quality Commission (CQC) is the independent regulator of all health and social care services in England. It monitors, regulates and inspects health and social care services, and makes unannounced and announced inspections of services on a regular basis and at any time in response to concerns raised.
During inspections the CQC:
- Asks people about the care they have received
- Talks to care staff
- Checks that the right systems and processes are in place
- Looks for evidence that care isn’t meeting government standards.
There are five questions that CQC ask of all care services:
- Are they safe?
- Are they effective?
- Are they caring?
- Are they responsive to people’s needs?
- Are they well led?
