Care Quality Commission Provider Rating System Undergoes Modernization and Extends Reach to All Health Care Providers in England

Country Correspondent: Molly Fitzgerald

Starting in 2018, the United Kingdom’s Care Quality Commission (CQC) will be responsible for inspecting care quality and safety for all health care organizations in England. The CQC already monitors hospital care, social care, and general practitioners. Now, some 800 additional providers, including independent doctors who deliver primary care online, will be expected to visibly display their inspection ratings on their websites or business premises. In addition, the CQC’s rating scheme is being modernized to ensure that future services such as apps and digital health care will be inspected. The CQC is a public, independent regulatory body that monitors all health and social care services in England.
