2 2 We make sure people get better care Who are we improving care for ? People who use services, carers and families People in more vulnerable circumstances What we will do to achieve our priorities Public and taxpayers Focus on quality, and acting swiftly to help eliminate poor quality care Our priorities Making sure care is centred on people’s need and reflects their rights Who are we? Registration and ongoing monitoring Regular reviews of performance Enforcement Special reviews and studies Mental Health Act visits Publishing information

3 Why regulate? People can expect services to meet essential standards of quality, protect their safety and respect their dignity and rights, wherever care is provided, wherever they live People have a right to choice and to know that providers are held accountable

4 Scale of CQC regulated care Primary medical services 9,000 locations NHS Trusts 2800 locations Independent healthcare 2,500 locations Adult social care 24,000 locations Independent ambulances 350 locations Primary dental care 10,000 locations Combined outpatients and inpatients 77.4 million People using adult social care services 1.75 million Dental appointments 36.4 million

7 How we gather evidence to monitor compliance Looking at outcomes, a person’s experience of the care they receive Involving people who use services in our reviews of compliance Using a wide range of sources of evidence Focusing on how care is delivered Being targeted and responsive – taking swift action to follow up concerns

8 CQC in a changing environment – continued We have had a critical external environment – but we are acknowledging mistakes and adapting to changing circumstances CQC was set up as a risk-based regulator – but the public and providers want regular inspection across the board We have committed to review and evaluate our model and are seeking additional funds from government

9 Refining our regulatory model Since April 2010 CQC have registered NHS services and providers of independent health and adult social care, against our new essential standards During this time, we have listened to challenges to our regulatory model In response, we are seeking to strengthen and simplify our regulatory model to improve how we inspect and take action Our approach will continue to be outcome-focused, responsive and risk-based but in addition to this we want to: inspect most providers more often target our inspections to focus on the relevant standards take swift regulatory action to tackle non-compliance Consultation on our proposals will begin on September 19 th 2011

10 CQC intend to inspect all adult social care services, independent health care services, NHS acute hospitals and ambulance trusts at least once a year – this is our scheduled inspection programme Scheduled inspections will focus on key standards; the choice of standards will depend on: The type of care provided The amount of information we hold on the provider Scheduled inspections Refining our regulatory model Simplifying the bar – compliant or non-complaint CQC will no longer issue minor, moderate or major concerns – providers will be either compliant or non-compliant

11 Information for those who choose services a summary of CQC’s judgement of compliance with essential standards and a provider’s compliance history an update on improvements against compliance conditions or CQC’s recommendations an alert when CQC intend to carry-out a planned or responsive review of the service information from people who have used the service From autumn, the CQC website will provide improved, accessible, useful, up-to-date information for the public, including:
