Ofsted-style rating for care homes

16th October 2013

Chief Inspector of Adult Social Care, Andrea Sutcliffe, has outlined her priorities for how the Care Quality Commission (CQC) will monitor, inspect and regulate care homes and other social care services.


The proposal recommends all care homes and adult social care service are rated to give the public information about each service, and to help them make decisions based on this information. There will also be expert team set up to inspect services, which will include members of the public who have experience of these types of services.

The fundamental objectives when accessing and rating care services will be; are the services safe, caring, effective, well-led and responsive to people’s needs.
The key proposals are all set out in the report 'A Fresh Start for the Regulation and Inspection of Adult Social Care'.

A public consultation on plans will take place in early 2014.
