The CQC propose to make changes so they can assess and rate services in England more flexibly, and update ratings more often in a more responsive and proportionate way. CQC say this will make ratings easier to understand.
CQC want to move away from comprehensive, on-site inspection as the main way of updating ratings and use wider sources of evidence to assess quality. On-site inspection will still be used where the regulator has information about significant risks to people's safety.
