About the Care Quality Commission

The Care Quality Commission is the independent regulator of health and adult social care services in England. We also protect the interests of people whose rights are restricted under the Mental Health Act.


Whether services are provided by the NHS, local authorities, private companies or voluntary organisations, we make sure that people get better care. We do this by:

● Driving improvement across health and adult social care.

● Putting people first and championing their rights.

● Acting swiftly to remedy bad practice.

● Gathering and using knowledge and expertise, and working with others.
