CQC seeks views on next phase of regulation
The Care Quality Commission (CQC) is consulting on a further set of proposals which will help shape the next phase of regulation for health and social care across the country.
The proposals include:
Changes to the regulation of primary medical services and adult social care services, including the frequency and intensity of its inspections and how CQC monitors providers and gathers its intelligence
Improvements to the structure of registration and CQC’s definition of ‘registered providers’.
How CQC will monitor, inspect and rate new models of care and large or complex providers.
Updated approach to the ‘fit and proper persons’ requirement.
