CQC Annual report and accountsCQC Annual report and accounts

CQC has published their annual report and accounts for 2017/18.

As expected, CQC report that they have not met their target for publishing inspection reports in adult social care. The target is for 90% of reports to be published within 50 days. In fact CQC published 84% in 50 days although this is an improvement on the year before.

By sector, 47% of adult social care services rated as requires improvement on their previous inspection, improved to good. However, 20% previously rated as good and re-inspected deteriorated to requires improvement and 3% deteriorated to inadequate. There were no separate figures for homecare providers.

The annual report records that more than 70% of survey responders who had been inspected in the last year said they felt CQC's judgements and ratings were fair and evidence-based. Some providers felt there were issues around consistency in inspections, with 47% agreeing that CQC's approach is consistent from inspection to inspection. By sector this was 56% of adult social care, 36% of hospital and 37% of primary medical services providers.

CQC say they are taking action to address this and have carried out a review to better understand areas of inconsistency with providers, CQC staff and other regulators.
