The CQC is consulting on a further set of proposals which will help shape the next phase of regulation of health and social care in England.
For the next eight weeks, anyone with an interest is encouraged to have their say.
The proposals include:
- Changes to the regulation of primary medical services such as GPs and dentists and adult social care services such as care homes and home-care services.
- This includes the frequency and intensity of inspections and how the CQC monitor, provide and gather intelligence.
- Improvements to the structure of registration and the definition of ‘registered providers’.
- Further information on how the CQC will monitor, inspect and rate new models of care and large or complex providers.
