Findings of the CQC’s Comprehensive Hospital Inspections Programme (BBC News / CQC)


The Care Quality Commission (CQC)’s “State of care in NHS acute hospitals: 2014 to 2016” report presents findings from the first round of acute and specialist hospital trust inspections. Analysis shows variations in the quality of care between hospitals, and between different core services at the same hospital(s). The majority of hospitals deliver good quality care, but inspections have uncovered aspects of poor care – even in well-performing hospitals.

“Safety at four in five hospital trusts in England is not good enough”. Professor Sir Mike Richards (CQC).
