CQC Inspections to Target Poor Home Care (Department of Health Media Centre)

[A version of this item appears in: Dementia: the Latest Evidence Newsletter (RWHT), Volume 2 Issue 5, December 2011].


On November 22nd the Care Services Minister Paul Burstow praised the Care Quality Commission’s announcement that it has planned a programme of unannounced inspections of 250 providers of home care services.

These inspections are intended to check standards of care, as indicated by the respect, care and welfare of people who receive care services in their own homes. The support given to the staff providing the care will also be appraised. This inspection programme is going to accompany the CQC’s planned reviews of home care services.

The CQC also conducts 1,000-plus unannounced inspections of adult social care services every month.
