CQC seeks views on its vision for the future – consultation launched
The Care Quality Commission (CQC) is seeking views on its plans for the next five years as it develops its approach to regulation.
CQC has changed the way it works over the past three years and in its consultation document, Shaping the future, it sets out a vision for the future regulation of health and social care.
The way health and social care is delivered has changed and is continuing to change, with increasing numbers of acute NHS trusts providing social care, more GP federations, and technology playing a greater role in the way services are delivered – coupled with the demographic challenge of increasing numbers of older people with needs that will be met by more than one service. In this consultation document, CQC sets out proposals that respond to these new ways of working.
- The consultation is open until 14 March. CQC will formally respond to the feedback provided when it publishes its strategy in May this year.
