Disability Rights UK ‘Tell Us About Your Care’ partnership with the Care Quality Commission

Good Care, Poor Care. Tell us now

Disability Rights UK is working with the Care Quality Commission (CQC) as part of the ‘Tell Us About Your Care’ partnership together with a number of national charities, including Mind, The National Autistic Society, Patients Association and the Relatives & Residents Association.

Disability Rights UK is gathering feedback from disabled people who contact us about their experiences of using health and social care services.

DR UK's Head of Advice Services, Michael Paul, says:

“Disability Rights UK are delighted to continue our relationship with CQC as part of the Tell Us About Your Care Partnership.  We are pleased that through this initiative disabled people and people with long term health conditions have the opportunity to tell the regulator about their experiences of the health and social care services they use, not only specialist services but services like GP surgeries that are used by everyone.”

We believe people should consider the quality of their experiences from a human rights perspective. The British Institute of Human Rights (BIHR) has a video called Know Your Human Rights. We encourage you to watch this video before feeding back to the CQC, especially where human rights may be at risk in mental health services.  

The CQC website can be accessed here. You can also provide direct feedback to the CQC on your experience of using any of the services they regulate. NB please remember to select Disability Rights UK in the 'how heard' section.

We're working together to ensure health and social care services in England provide you with high quality care so tell us about your care.
