Care Quality Commission suspends routine inspections

Share this

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
