Join our online community of providers

What does the online community do?

Our online community is comprised of CQC registered providers and health and social care professionals. Members of the online community can feed back on our new documents and other developments, and other activities we are planning, to help us develop useful and meaningful content and processes.

Who can join?

The online community is for providers of care services and health and social care professionals (and other related not-for-profit organisations such as charities or voluntary groups).

As well as hosting a general discussion forum, the community is set up with specific groups for providers of:

  • adult social care
  • dental services
  • healthcare services
  • primary medical services

If you don’t meet the eligibility criteria above, you can get involved with our work in a number of different ways:
