The CQC is adapting its regulatory approach in response to the coronavirus outbreak by suspending all routine inspections of all registered health and social care providers.
Other steps include:
- a shift towards other, remote methods to give assurance of safety and quality of care
- some inspection activity in a small number of cases, for example where there are allegations of abuse
- giving extra support to registered managers in adult social care
