The health and social care landscape is changing. We want your views on how we can continue to develop a more targeted, responsive and collaborative approach to regulation.

We’ve now published the response to our December consultation on our next phase of regulation. Visit the website to read it and the related guidance documents we’ve produced.

We’re also launching a second consultation today. It includes new proposals for how we’ll regulate primary medical care services such as GPs and dentists and adult social care services like care homes and home-care services.

We’d love to hear your views. You can take part in our second consultation online. It’s open until 8 August 2017.

Speak up‘ campaign from 6 March. If you have feedback about you or your loved ones care, they want you to tell them about it, good or bad. By telling CQC about your experiences, you could stop poor care happening to someone else. Find out more
