Care Quality Commission
What is the Care Quality Commission (CQC)?
The CQC are a body who are independent regulators of all health and social care services in England. They check that people get suitable, safe health and social care of a standard that meets the rules set by the government and covers all services provided by hospitals, GP surgeries, dentists, ambulance services, care homes, and services provided within people’s homes.
The Practice is checked by the CQC to ensure that we are registered and our premises and services are good enough to meet government standards. As part of the registration process we have to provide a statement of purpose. This is a document which includes set standards about the services that we provide.
Our Statement of Purpose describes:
- Our aims and objectives in providing our services.
- The kinds of services we provide.
- The locations of our premises.
- Details about our practice, which includes our legal status, and the managers, including the address for service for all registered persons.
