The following table contains hyperlinks to legislation that may be relevant to health and social care. We have identified the key Acts and regulations that are likely to be applicable. However, this list is not intended to be exhaustive and there may be further relevant legislation that is not identified.

The Care Quality Commission cannot accept responsibility for the accuracy of the information that appears in these hyperlinks as the information is provided by other organisations. You should therefore take steps to satisfy yourself that legislation you rely on is up to date and has not been subject to further amendment. Please help us to keep this list up to date by reporting any broken links you find using the link on the right of this page.
