CQC to partner with charities and patient advocacy groups

The Care Quality Commission has announced it will be working with a number of ‘Tell us about your care’ partner organisations: Carers UK, Disability Rights UK, Mind, The National Autistic Society, Patients Association, and the Relatives & Residents Association.

The organisations will pass information to the CQC with the aim of improving its regulation of health and care services, and helping to identify best practice.

Chris Day, Director of Engagement at the Care Quality Commission, said:

“We share common cause with organisations that work with and represent people who use services in wanting to make sure that our health and social care services provide safe, effective, compassionate and high-quality care, which is why it’s fantastic to be working with Carers UK, Disability Rights UK, Mind, The National Autistic Society, Patients Association, and the Relatives & Residents Association in this way. They will help us to reach even more people who may have information that can allow us to take action against poor care, encourage improvement, and to celebrate great services.”
