Who are the Care Quality Commission?

The Care Quality Commission (CQC) is the independent regulator of health and adult social care in England. Their role is to monitor, inspect and regulate services to make sure that services meet the fundamental standards of quality and safety. The CQC publishes their findings including performance ratings to help people choose their care.

A new approach to how the CQC regulate, inspect and rate services came into effect on 1st April 2015 with the launch of the new Fundamental Standards. The CQC will assess the quality of services using 5 key questions:

  • Are they safe?
  • Are they effective?
  • Are they caring?
  • Are they responsive to people's needs?
  • Are they well-led?
