Birmingham part of CQC local health and social care system review
From the Care Quality Commission (CQC).
Birmingham will be part of an upcoming programme of local system reviews by the CQC. The CQC has been asked by the Secretaries of State for Health and for Communities and Local Government to undertake a series of reviews of health and social care in 12 local authority areas.
This will include a review of commissioning across the interface of health and social care and an assessment of the governance in place for the management of resources.
They will look specifically at how people move between health and social care, including delayed transfers of care, with a particular focus on people over 65 years old. The review will not include mental health services or specialist commissioning but, through case tracking, will look at the experiences of people living with dementia as they move through the system.
