The CQC has pledged to change the way it regulates adult social care services following its consultation on its next phase of regulation.
The regulator received 380 responses during the consultation from June to August on its set of proposals aiming to simplify the way it regulates health and social care.
Ten events were held in June and July with providers, stakeholder organisations and member of the public as part of the consultation.
The CQC said it had listened to the views received and pledged to implement changes to registration so that it can hold people to account at the right level when regulating providers.
It also pledged to:
Change the way it regulates primary medical and adult social care services, including how it monitors providers and the frequency and scope of inspections;
Develop how it monitors, inspects and rates new models of care and large or complex providers; and
Update its approach to the ‘fit and proper persons’ requirement.
The CQC said the changes would be implemented within a phased approach.
