Care Quality Commission (CQC)
The Care Quality Commission (CQC) is the independent regulator who ensures hospitals, care homes, dental and GP surgeries, and all other care services in England provide people with safe, effective, compassionate and high-quality care, and we encourage them to make improvements.
They do this by inspecting services against government standards and publishing the results on their website to help you make better decisions about the care you receive.

- Read our Action Plan in response to our recent Care Quality Commission inspection. This Action Plan is our response to the CQC’s compliance actions. This plan is an opportunity for us to be open and transparent about what we’re doing to improve and enhance those areas of our service where we were told we could do better. This Action Plan covers our initial actions, and going forward, will include other work that we will be carrying out to enhance other areas of our services. Our Board of Directors are overseeing the progress of this plan and are determined that these actions are carried out swiftly.

Monitor is the sector regulator for health services in England, which protects and promotes the interests of patients by ensuring that the whole sector works for their benefit.
Monitor asks foundation trusts to assess their own compliance with the terms of their licence, as part of its risk based approach to regulation. NHS foundation trusts submit an annual plan, quarterly and ad hoc reports to Monitor.
Using this information Monitor assigns annual and quarterly risk ratings, monitors actual performance against plans, and identifies any steps that need to be taken to address problems.
