Care Quality Commission

Care Quality Commission

The Care Quality Commission (CQC) is the independent regulator of health and social care in England and makes sure that health and social care services provide people with safe, effective, compassionate and high-quality care. The CQC periodically inspects care services it oversees, and where appropriate, recommends areas where improvement is required.

The role of the CQC is to:

  • Approve and register care providers
  • Monitor, inspect and rate services
  • Take action to protect people using services of registered providers
  • Speak with an independent voice and publish views on major quality issues in health and social care

For more information about the CQC please view the following  CQC produced video clip.

If you require any further information about the CQC please visit their website at Care Quality Commission

With effect from 1st July 2017 the hospice at home service previously provided by a Trust known as Shipston Home Nursing is delivered by a charitable incorporated body also known as Shipston Home Nursing.  The new entity is approved and monitored by the CQC but has not yet been formally inspected and therefore no current inspection report is available.
