Care Quality Commission (CQC)

CQC inspect GP practices and other primary medical services in England to check that they are meeting the national standards of quality and safety. 

CQC inspectors visit health and adult social care services across England to check that they are meeting the standards.  Inspection visits can happen at any time. 

During the inspections the CQC inspector will:

    • ask people about their experiences of receiving care.

    • talk to care staff.

    • check that the right systems and processes are in place.

    • look for evidence that care isn’t meeting national standards.
