On the day briefing: CQC launch their strategy consultation

The Care Quality Commission (CQC) is approaching the completion of its 2016-2021 strategy, and has today launched their consultation for their strategy for 2021 and beyond.  In the document, CQC sets out how it plans to develop its approach in line with a changing health and care landscape taking into account the context and learning from COVID-19, the development of system working and greater use of digital technologies. CQC has identified a need to transform and ensure its regulatory model is relevant and fit for purpose in an evolving system. 

This briefing summarises the main points set out in the strategy document and NHS Providers view.  We would greatly appreciate any feedback you may have to feed into our response to this consultation, and we would also encourage trusts to submit their own responses to the consultation.
