The State of health care and adult social care

The Care Quality Commission (CQC) has published The state of health care and adult social care in England 2015/16.

This annual report provides an overview of health and social care in England looking at trends, highlighting examples of good and outstanding care, and identifying factors that maintain high-quality care.

It finds that most services provide people with good care, but variation exists. Some care services are closing, increasing pressure on other services including GPs and hospitals.  The report highlights that the sustainability of the adult social care market is approaching a tipping point.
