CQC inspectors publish ratings on 20 London adult social care services
In the past week the Care Quality Commission has published a further 20 reports on the quality of care provided by adult social care services across London.
Following recent inspections, one of these care homes and homecare agencies have been rated as Outstanding, 11 have been rated as Good, six have been rated as Requires Improvement and two have been rated as Inadequate.
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.
“Outstanding providers, such as Marlborough Court, often go the extra mile to ensure that residents receive the best possible service and often demonstrate a sound understanding of the different needs of their service users and reflect these needs when planning and delivering services.
"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.”

Notes to editors
In October 2014, CQC began to roll out its new inspection regime for adult social care services across England, using specialist teams who will inspect and rate services against what matters to the people who use them. For further information, please visit 'Making the 'Mum test' real'.
Since 1 April, providers have been required to display their ratings on their premises and on their websites so that the public can see their rating quickly and easily. See further information on the requirement for providers to prominently display their CQC ratings.
