Care Quality Commission


Organisation Summary

The Care Quality Commission (CQC) is the independent regulator of health and social care in England. Our purpose is to make sure health and social care services provide people with safe, effective, compassionate, high quality care and we encourage care to improve. We register, monitor, inspect and regulate services to make sure they meet fundamental standards of quality and safety and we publish what we find, including performance ratings to help people choose care.

Why is your organisation committed to the NDAA and the Dementia Statements?

People living with dementia, and those that care for them, can be long term or frequent users of the health and social care services that we regulate, and may rely on multiple services at any one time to receive the care and support they need. At the Care Quality Commission, we are determined to play our part in making sure that people living with dementia experience care that is safe, effective, compassionate and high-quality. We will hold services to account by setting clear expectations, monitoring and inspecting against those standards, sharing our findings and ratings on how services are performing and taking action to encourage them to improve where that is necessary.
