Developing our assessments of quality in systems

“The Health and Care Bill gives CQC new powers to assess local authorities on the delivery of their social care duties, and, following the recent amendment, to have oversight of Integrated Care Systems (ICSs).”

What would be helpful for care homes would be oversight of:

  • application of safeguarding thresholds in residential and day care settings
  • performance of local authorities in responding to DoLS applications
  • proactive diligence with care reviews
  • auctions and bidding for placements
  • approaches to discharge to assess
  • investment in reablement and respite care
  • advocacy support for care home residents
