Care Quality Commission (CQC)
Welcome to our Care Quality Commission web page
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.
