The Care Quality Commission (CQC) is the independent health and adult social care regulator. Their job is to check whether hospitals, care homes, GPs, dentists and services in your area are meeting national standards.
They do this by inspecting services and publishing their findings, helping people to make choices about the care they receive.
They also will look at the quality and safety of the care provided based on the things that matter to people.
CQC will look at whether the service is:
- Responsive to people’s needs
The CQC are inspecting Greater Manchester West Mental Health NHS Foundation Trust starting from 8 February 2016. Before an inspection they consider a lot of information to help them to decide what needs to be looked at during the inspection.
Your experiences of care, and those of your family and friends, will help them to do this.
