Care Quality Commission
Registration with CQC and changes to statements of purpose during COVID-19
As social care and health services care for people during the outbreak of COVID-19, we have been working with providers to adapt our regulatory approach and support them at this challenging time.
We yesterday wrote to every registered care provider in England setting out how we're making it easier for them to tell us important information about how they are responding, and potentially changing the way they work.
As health and care services respond to the challenges of COVID 19 we will provide them with the support to make changes safety and easily.
