CQC consults on next phase of regulation

The CQC is seeking the views of care home providers on the next phase of regulation for health and social care.

Proposals include: changing the frequency and intensity of adult social care inspection and how CQC monitors providers and gathers intelligence; improvements to registration structure and the ‘registered providers’ definition; how new models of care and large or complex providers will be monitored and inspected; and an updated approach to the ‘fit and proper persons’ requirement.

David Behan, Chief Executive at CQC, (pictured) said: “Everyone has the right to experience safe, high quality and compassionate care. We are seeking views on how CQC’s regulation will play its part in achieving this.

“As providers respond to the rapidly changing health and care landscape by exploring new models of care, we are consulting on how we will regulate these to ensure that we encourage improvement, collaboration and innovation while ensuring that people get good, safe care.”

The responses to the CQC’s first set of proposals have been published.
