The Care Quality Commission checks whether hospitals, care homes and care services are meeting government standards. Visit our website at www.cqc.org.uk.
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:
- Give us feedback about a care service you have used.
- Give us feedback if you are a group representing local people who use care services.

Online community events
Once you've signed up you can take part in our online live Q&A events.
Join Helene Donnelly (Ambassador for Cultural Change at Staffordshire & Stoke on Trent Partnership NHS Trust) and James Titcombe (CQC National Advisor on Patient Safety) who will be answering your questions on the work they’re currently doing on encouraging staff to raise concerns, and improve patient safety.
Time: 12 – 1pm.
This Q&A will be exploring the recent Supreme Court judgement on deprivation of liberty, and looking at how it could be used to drive good practice.
You'll also be able to view the Q&As after the events, once you've logged in.
If you have a query about the online community or need help with signing up, please send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
