The Care Quality Commission (CQC) is the independent regulator for health care and adult social care services in England.

Our purpose is to make sure health and social care services, including hospitals, care homes, dental and GP surgeries, and all other care services in England, provide people with safe, effective, compassionate and high-quality care, and we encourage them to make improvements.

We do this by inspecting services and publishing the results on our website to help you make better decisions about the care you receive.
