Clinical Quality Commission (CQC)

Welcome to our Care Quality Commission web page. The Care Quality Commission (CQC) is the independent regulator of health & social care in England. Each NHS trust is legally responsible for making sure it is compliant with the outcomes of Quality & Safety. The CQC will inspect NHS Trusts, reviewing key clinical services, looking at the care patients receive, the systems and processes in place and considering:

  • Is it safe?
  • Is it effective?
  • Is it caring?
  • Is it responsive to peoples’ needs?
  • Is it well led?

Shropshire Community Health NHS Trust has been registered with the CQC under the Health & Social Care Act 2008, without condition, since 01 July 2011 to provide the following services:

  • Diagnostic and Screening Procedures
  • Family Planning
  • Nursing Care
  • Surgical Procedures
  • Treatment of Disease, Disorder or Injury

The CQC check how NHS services are meeting the outcomes of quality and safety though a programme of routine or risk based inspections and will share their findings with the public via their website.
