The Care Quality Commission (CQC) is an independent regulatory organisation that monitors, inspects and regulate services to make sure they meet fundamental standards of quality and safety.  Their reports and findings are published, including performance ratings to help people choose care and be reassured that the health and social care services provided are safe, effective, compassionate and high-quality care.  The CQC will be inspecting your local GP Practices from January 2015 onwards and we would like to encourage patients and carers to feedback your comments and experiences.

 The Care Quality Commission inspects the following services:-

  • Care homes
  • Hospitals
  • Services in your homes
  • Doctors/GPs
  • Dentists
  • Clinics
  • Community services
  • Mental health services

 The CQC have a number of key principles that guide how they will inspect and regulate all care services, with a very strong emphasis towards using feedback from patients and the public to inform their judgements about services.  If you would like to know more about the CQC inspections please click on the following link:-

 The CQC are committed to involving patients and local communities in all their work. Patients will be involved in their inspections of GP practices and GP out-of-hours services. They will gather views from individuals, families and carers and local representative groups before they carry out an inspection. The CQC will work specifically with local groups who gather the views of local people and who represent patients and communities such as practices’ Patient Participation Groups and Local Healthwatch. 

 Individuals will have an opportunity to feed back any comments about their experiences of the services provided and we would like to encourage this to take place, patients and carers can do so by completing an online experience form or can contact CQC direct on  03000 61 61 61
