In the past week the Care Quality Commission has published a further 14 reports on the quality of care provided by adult social care services across London.

Following recent inspections, nine of these care homes and homecare agencies have been rated as Good and five have been rated as Requires Improvement.

Under CQC’s new programme of inspections, all of England’s adult social care services are being given a rating according to whether they are safe, effective, caring, responsive and well led.

Sally Warren, CQC's Deputy Chief Inspector for Adult Social Care, said:

“Everyone should be confident that their local social care providers will deliver safe, effective, compassionate and high quality care. Where we find that this is the case, we give a rating of Good, or Outstanding.

"If we find that a service requires improvement, we will expect them to deliver a full plan setting out how they will address the issues that have been identified. We will share our findings with local commissioners, and we will return in due course to check that the required improvements have been made.

“For services found to be Inadequate, we will consider taking further action in order to protect the health and wellbeing of local service users.”

Full reports on all 14 inspections are available on this website.
