The Care Quality Commission (CQC) is an independent regulator of health and adult social care in England.
They routinely inspect:
#Mental Health Services
Through their inspections they make sure health and social care services provide people with safe, effective, compassionate, high-quality care and we encourage care services to improve.
The CQC monitor, inspect and regulate services to make sure they meet fundamental standards of quality and safety and then publish what they find, including performance ratings to help people choose care.
They set out what good and outstanding care looks like and we make sure services meet fundamental standards below which care must never fall.
They are empowered to take action, and where they find poor care, we will use their powers to take action, such as enforcement notices and warning notices, and where necessary can place a service in special measures.
