Partnerships with other organisations

  • Public

We work closely with other organisations that manage and oversee the health and social care system so that we can spot and stamp out bad practice together.

Some of the organisations we work with include Healthwatch England, Monitor, NHS England and Ofsted.

Together, we:

  • share information about services.
  • improve how care is overseen.
  • make the most use of our joint resources and activities.
  • reduce duplication.

Once appointed, our Chief Inspectors for hospitals and social care will make sure that concerns about care are brought to the attention of our partners.
