UKHCA's response to CQC's consultation on flexible regulation 2021

UKHCA's response to the Care Quality Commission's consultation on changes for more flexible and responsive regulation.

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.

This document was produced when the organisation was known as UKHCA.
