On the day briefing: The state of health care and adult social care in England 2016-17

The Care Quality Commission has published The state of health and adult social care in England 2016/17, an annual assessment of quality performance, trends, and themes amongst all providers that are registered with the CQC.

All providers that are registered with the CQC have now been inspected therefore providing a baseline view of quality across health and social care.

The CQC concludes that most people are still receiving high quality care. While some providers have been successful at improving care despite the mounting pressures, there are signs quality is deteriorating in some services and staff are showing signs of strain. Among trusts who rating rose upon re-inspection, common factors include strong visible leadership, engaged staff, clear vision and values, strong collaboration with local partners, and active involvement of patients and families in care.
