The Care Quality Commission (CQC) is the independent regulator of all health and social care services in England. They monitor, inspect and regulate hospitals, care homes, GP surgeries, dental practices and other care services to make sure they meet fundamental standards of quality and safety.
The CQC is in the process of creating guidance for local voluntary and community sector groups that will look at how we can best work together. They say:
We really want to find out your views on how we might work with each other and want to find out how you work with your local communities.
