We have worked together with four other local Healthwatch, to send a response to a consultation by the Care Quality Commission (CQC).
This is about proposed changes to how they do their work.
The CQC proposes to:
- Carry out fewer person’ inspections of organisations.
- Change how it gives quality ratings to GP practices and to NHS hospital trusts.
- Run fewer formal public consultations and do more engagement with the public through an online forum.
