Community Health Care Inspections: a New Approach (Care Quality Commission)

Summary

The Care Quality Commission’s (CQC) has set-out the plans for a “fresh start” in the regulation and inspection of community health care. The inspection of these services will involve teams which include:

  1. Expert CQC inspectors.
  2. Sector specialists and clinicians (nurses, health visitors, allied health professionals including occupational therapists, GPs and sector managers).
  3. Experts by experience: people who have experience of using care services.

“Health services are now increasingly likely to be delivered in people’s homes, health centres and community hospitals and this makes joined up care between different providers and agencies important”.
