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.

A copy of our response letter is available here
