To make sure services continue to be safe and ensure people receive safe care, while limiting impact on care providers
The Care Quality Commission (CQC) introduces a pragmatic and flexible approach to how and when it will regulate. CQC will continue with inspections, but will review plans on an ongoing basis and may postpone them. It will focus its activity where risks to the quality of care are highest.
