Proposed Changes to Health and Social Care Regulations

June 13, 2017

The Care Quality Commission (CQC) want your views on changes that they are planning to health and adult social care services.

 This is the second consultation on their proposed changes.

The CQC will work together where providers are delivering services across the hospital, primary care or adult social care sectors. They will also continue to work and learn with services as they change and adopt innovative ways of providing care.

The CQC want to keep the elements that we know people value, and to improve what people tell them they can do better. They will continue to work with people who use services, providers, professionals and other local and national partners to co-produce what they do.
