Care Quality Commission, 30 October 2014
The CQC have released their annual report into the state of health care and adult social care in England for 2013/14.
In 2013/14 the CQC began to introduce a new, tougher approach to inspecting care services. The more rigorous, expert-led inspections are starting to give a deeper understanding of the quality of health and social care than ever before. They report that they have found many examples of good and outstanding care. But they’ve also found wide variation in quality. There are big differences in the quality of care that people experience from different providers, in different places and sometimes at different times of the day or day of the week.
