New inspection ratings
The CQC are moving to a new inspection model and rate services according to how safe, effective, caring, responsive and well-led they are, using four levels:
Outstanding – the service is performing exceptionally well.
Good - the service is performing well and meeting the CQC's expectations.
Requires improvement – the service isn't performing as well as it should and the CQC have told the service how it must improve.
Inadequate – the service is performing badly and the CQC have taken enforcement action against the provider of the service.
No rating/under appeal/rating suspended – there are some services which the CQC can't rate, while some might be under appeal from the provider. Suspended ratings are being reviewed by the CQC and will be published soon.
