Care Quality Commission State of Care report 2016-17

10 October 2017

The State of Health Care and Adult Social Care in England 2016/2017

Go to report

This year’s report shows that the quality of care has been maintained despite some very real challenges. Most of us are receiving good, safe care and many services that were previously rated inadequate have recognised our inspection findings, made the necessary changes and improved.

The fact that quality has been maintained in the toughest climate most can remember is testament to the hard work and dedication of staff and leaders. However, as the system continues to struggle with increasingly complex demand, access and cost, future quality is precarious.

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

The CQC website can be accessed here, and in the meantime you can also provide direct feedback to the CQC on your experience of using any of the services they regulate.
