The Care Quality Commission regulates all health and adult social care services in England, including those provided by the NHS, local authorities, private companies or voluntary organisations. It also protects the interests of people detained under the Mental Health Act.
The CQC makes sure that essential standards of quality and safety are being met where care is provided. It has a wide range of enforcement powers to take action on behalf of people who use services if these services are unacceptably poor.
By law all NHS providers must register with the CQC to show they are protecting people from risk.
From April 2013 all primary care service providers must be registered and licensed with the CQC to show they are meeting essential standards of quality and safety. Without registration, providers will not be allowed to operate.
