CQC Launch Formal Consultation on Next Phase of Regulation

The consultation document, ‘Our next phase of regulation: A more targeted, responsive and collaborative approach’, follows the CQC strategy for 2016 to 2021, published in May 2016, which sets out an ambitious vision for a more targeted, responsive and collaborative approach to regulation, so that more people get high-quality care. CQC want your views on a number of proposals for implementing the five-year strategy. These proposals are aimed at achieving:

  • A more integrated approach that enables us to be flexible and responsive to changes in care provision
  • A more targeted approach that focuses on areas of greatest concern, such as safety, and where there have been improvements in quality
  • A greater emphasis on leadership, including at the level of overall accountability for quality of care
  • Closer working and alignment with NHS Improvement and other partners so that providers experience less duplication.

If you would like to share your views, please read and respond to the consultation – click here.
