CQC jobs: Inspection roles - Adult Social Care

  • Public

"Adult social care has the power to positively transform people’s lives and CQC plays an important part in ensuring that people using services have the care and support they have every right to expect.

"We regulate care homes, home care, hospice care and other adult social care services across the country.

"We will always be on the side of the people who use care services, which includes listening to people’s views and using expert inspection teams involving people who have a personal experience of care

"For every care service we look at we apply the ‘Mum Test’, but it could be anyone we love or care about. We ask, is this service good enough for my loved one? If it is, this is celebrated. If not, we will take action.

"In our inspections we ask the questions that matter most to people – are the services safe, caring, effective, well-led and responsive to people’s needs? We rate care services as outstanding, good, requires improvement or inadequate, so that the public has clear information about services.

"We use our rigorous registration process and enforcement powers to ensure providers are properly held to account for delivering high quality care. From April 2015 we now monitor the finances of over 40 care providers that would be difficult to replace if they were to go out of business. We also take part in themed inspections across pathways of care, with colleagues from the hospital and primary care inspection directorates."
