This document contains the following information: The state of health care and adult social care in England: key themes and quality of services in 2010 to 2011.
The Care Quality Commission is the independent regulator of health care and adult social care services in England. This is the third annual report covering the period April 2010 until March 2011 and is based on the CQC’s responsibilities under the Health and Social Care Act 2008 (PGA 2008, Chp.14, ISBN 9780105414087) and the first report on the state of care under the new Act.
This report therefore provides an overview of registered health and adult social care providers and services. The report has four main sections: the shape of care provision; access to care and services; choice and control; and quality and safety.
This paper was laid before Parliament in response to a legislative requirement or as a Return to an Address and was ordered to be printed by the House of Commons.
