CQC publishes 'State of Care' report for 2018CQC publishes 'State of Care' report for 2018

The publication of the Care Quality Commission's annual 'State of Care Report' presents a picture of England's social care and health system where overall quality has been maintained (and improved in some cases) since last year, despite challenges around demand and funding as well as significant workforce pressures as all sectors struggle to recruit and retain staff.

However, the adult social care sector continues to be fragile, particularly in homecare, with many providers handing contracts back to local authorities. The report also states that in two years, the number of older people living with an unmet care need has risen by almost 20%, to nearly one in seven older people.

The full report can be downloaded from the CQC website.
