What is the Care Quality Commission?
Formed on 1 April 2009, the Care Quality Commission (CQC) brings together independent regulation of health, mental health and adult social care. They inspect all health and adult social care services in England, whether they are provided by the NHS, local authorities, private companies or voluntary organisations. They ensure that essential common standards of quality are met everywhere care is provided, from hospitals to private care homes, and work towards improvement. They promote the rights and interests of people who use services and have a wide range of enforcement powers to take action.
