CQC publish consultation response on next phase of regulation

The response to the second CQC consultation on proposals that aim to simplify and strengthen the way they regulate health and social care in England is now available.

A total of 380 responses we received during the consultation period and 10 consultation events in June and July 2017 with providers, stakeholder organisations and members of the public.

CQC will begin to implement changes to registration so they can hold people to account at the right level when regulating providers.

They will also:

• Change the way they regulate primary medical and adult social care services. This includes how they monitor providers and the frequency and scope of inspections
• Develop how they will monitor, inspect and rate new models of care and large or complex providers
• Update their approach to the ‘fit and proper persons’ requirement

The next step is to implement these changes which will be introduced in a phased approach.
