CQC's role and who we regulate
The Care Quality Commission (CQC) is the regulator of health and adult social care services. We check that hospitals, care homes, GPs, dentists and services in peoples' home are providing safe, effective care.
Our remit includes registering and inspecting independent acute hospitals, both corporately owned or standalone. This includes NHS treatment centres and private patient units located within an NHS acute or specialty trust, where these are run and managed by an independent provider.
We publish our inspection findings – you can find our inspection reports and ratings (where applicable) at www.cqc.org.uk.
Share your experience of cosmetic surgery
We want to hear what you think about specific cosmetic surgery services – you can tell us by filling in a share your experience form.
We only license and regulate cosmetic treatments that involve surgical procedures. We do NOT regulate services including Botox® or fillers that are injected for cosmetic purposes, or laser hair removal. More on what CQC regulates.
When filling in the form, remember to include details of the clinic or ward where the treatment took place and the type of treatment you received.
Please tell us about other services
You can also tell us about care from other services in your area such as your GP, dentist or care home. We'll use this information to help us to decide when to inspect and what we should look at during inspections.
