On the day briefing: CQC next phase consultation response and follow-up consultation
The Care Quality Commission (CQC) has published its response to its consultation on its next phase for regulating NHS trusts. This briefing summarises the main feedback received and CQC’s response and conclusions following the consultation and highlights next steps trusts will need to be aware of.
Alongside this, a further consultation has been published which sets out proposals for how the CQC will regulate the other sectors within its remit (adult social care and primary medical services), but also includes proposals that apply to all regulated sectors and encompass:
- how the CQC will register, monitor, inspect and rate new models of care and large or complex providers
- how the CQC aims to encourage improvement in local areas
- how it will carry out its role in relation to the fit and proper person requirements.
This briefing also summarises the proposals contained in this new consultation and includes our media statement issued on the day.Download
