UKHCA Media Release

UKHCA’s response to the CQC state of health care and adult social care in England 2014/15 - 15/10/2015

Today (15 October), the CQC published its annual report on the state of health care and adult social care in England, covering the period 2014/15.

UKHCA Policy and Campaigns Director, Colin Angel said:

UKHCA welcomes the publication of this report. The safety of social care and health services is a matter which all providers will wish to review, using the learning points from this report.

"CQC rightly observes that strong leadership plays a significant role in organisations' performance and we commend the Commission for its challenge to the whole health and social care sector in this respect.

CQC acknowledges the intense pressure faced by the care sector and the financial demands on councils and providers during 2014/15. It is disappointing that the commission has been unable to detect a significant correlation between the low prices paid for care and quality and we believe this requires further analysis. We also note that the underfunding of care is featured within the report and that there are messages about the stability of local care markets.”
