01 Apr Update on CQC’s regulatory approach
The CQC (Care Quality Commission) has updated its regulatory approach, outlining changes that will take effect from today, 1st April, and what they mean for providers from all sectors.
- a return to inspect and rate NHS trusts and independent healthcare services that are rated as inadequate or require improvement, or where new risks have come to light
- undertaking infection, prevention and control (IPC) inspections in care homes to ensure people are receiving safe care
- prioritising high risk independent healthcare services for inspection, for example, cosmetic surgery services, independent ambulance services, and those where closed cultures may exist
