About The CQC

The CQC is the independent regulator of health and social care in England, including all NHS and private hospitals. Their aim is to ensure that hospitals meet fundamental standards of quality and safety.

CQC inspection findings are published in regular reports, which include a hospital rating, to help patients to choose suitable care.

Having independent reports and ratings brings deeper understanding of facilities you may be considering. A reflection of real world visits and ongoing monitoring by experienced inspectors.

You can know what to expect, especially when information comes from people who know what good hospital care looks like.

Their focus on staff knowledge and ability is particularly welcome, they are the core of effective patient support.

The 5 key questions which they ask about all hospitals are:
