Detail of outcome
At present, the Care Quality Commission publishes ratings for:
- NHS Trusts and Foundation Trusts
- GP practices
- adult social care providers
- independent hospitals
This document is a summary of 38 responses to the consultation to introduce new CQC regulations to expand the scope of performance and assessment ratings of all providers, regulated by the CQC, apart from a short list of services.
The Department of Health proposes to amend the Care Quality Commission (Reviews and Performance Assessments) Regulations 2014 so that CQC has a duty to rate all providers of regulated activities, except for some specific registered service providers and regulated activities.
This consultation is targeted at providers of health and social care services registered with CQC. It seeks your views as to whether it is appropriate for CQC to extend performance assessment and ratings to include independent community health services and independent doctors.
