The Department of Health has launched the Developing Care Markets for Quality and Choice Programme (DCMQC) to help ensure greater choice and higher quality of care and support services across the UK.
“The Developing Care Markets for Quality and Choice (DCMQC) programme will help local authorities build their capacity to … improve choice, provide tailored care and focus care on the outcomes that matter to people. This reinforces the Government’s commitment in the Caring for our Future White Paper to provide support to help local authorities develop their market capacity to provide greater choice for users and drive up quality in care services”.
