The Care Quality Commission (CQC) is the independent regulator of all health and social care services in England. Their job is to make sure that care provided by hospitals, general medical practices, dentists, ambulances, care homes and services in people’s own homes and elsewhere meets national standards of quality and safety. The national standards cover all aspects of care, including:
- treating people with dignity and respect.
- making sure medical records are well maintained and up to date.
- making sure that that the environment is clean and safe.
- managing and staffing services.
All general medical practices will be inspected by the CQC. A report on our standard of services has been published by the CQC and can be accessed on the link below.
