|This problem is not going to be solved by taxing a few people a lot more|
In a national report published recently, CQC presented the findings from their comprehensive programme of adult social care inspections.
This is the first time such focused analysis on a national scale has been possible, following the introduction of their new regulatory regime for adult social care in October 2014.
Since then, we've carried out more than 33,000 inspections of around 24,000 different services. These include residential homes, nursing homes, care in people’s own homes, Shared Lives schemes and Supported Living Services. These are vital services for thousands of people, young & old, who may be living with a physical disability, learning disability, autism, dementia and/or mental health conditions.The report finds that while the majority of adult social care services are of a high quality and many are improving, too many people across England are receiving care in care homes and in their own home that is not good enough.
