The Care Quality Commission

The Government has brought in a system that checks and regulates adult social care services. Registration is at the centre of the system.

All health and social care organisations have to register with the Care Quality Commission (CQC). Organisations must show they are meeting essential standards of quality and safety across all the activities and services they provide. The system will make sure that people can
expect services to meet essential standards of quality and safety that respect their dignity and protect their rights.
