What does CQC compliant mean?

Asked by: 13 views Uncategorized

The UK’s health and social care watchdog, the Care Quality Commission (CQC), has a set of standards that all providers of care must meet in order to be compliant. These standards cover everything from the quality of care provided to the safety and cleanliness of the premises. Providers who meet all of the CQC’s standards are said to be “CQC compliant”.

Being CQC compliant is extremely important for any provider of health or social care services in the UK. Not only does it ensure that the care provided is of a high quality, but it also helps to protect both patients and staff from potentially unsafe situations. All providers of care should aim to be CQC compliant, and those who are not may face enforcement action from the CQC.
