On the day briefing: CQC launches its new five year strategy

This briefing summarises the Care Quality Commission’s (CQC) new five-year strategy from 2021, A new strategy for the changing world of health and social care, which combines its learning and experience over the past five years with contributions from its stakeholders and partners.

We are pleased to have engaged with CQC and fed into the development of its new strategy over the past year on behalf of trusts. This includes attending CQC’s stakeholder engagement events, providing feedback on its draft strategy, responding to its strategy consultation and its consultation on flexible and responsive regulation, and gathering trusts’ views on proposals set out in the strategy through our annual regulation survey.

CQC continues to build on its four thematic areas of focus within the new strategy: a focus on people and communities; smarter regulation; safety through learning; and collaborating for improvement. The strategy restates CQC’s commitment to ensuring health and care services provide people with safe, effective, compassionate, high-quality care, and to encourage those services to improve.
