CQC consulting on changes to Market Oversight GuidanceCQC consulting on changes to Market Oversight Guidance

The Care Quality Commission (CQC) are proposing to make changes to guidance on the Market Oversight scheme, and have listed these on page 71 of their engagement paper:

Market Oversight of 'difficult to replace' providers of adult social care Guidance for providers August 2020 (draft)

The changes are the result of CQC's experience of carrying out market oversight since it was given statutory responsibility in 2015. CQC has to monitor and assess the financial sustainability of those care organisations in England that local authorities would find difficult to replace should they fail and become unable to carry on delivering a service. There is more about Market Oversight and how it works on CQC's website. CQC say there are around 65 large or specialist providers of residential care services and home-care services in the scheme at present. 

The consultation closes on 19 October 2020. Online form to respond.
