AvMA and the Care Quality Commission (CQC) – the independent regulator of health and adult social care services in England, have entered into a pilot to help raise public awareness of the standards people are entitled to expect whenever they receive care.  The pilot commenced in July and is due to run for 6 months.  AvMA hope that the pilot will prove to be an effective way for CQC to hear more from people about their experiences of care to inform their inspection work.  The aim is for AvMA to provide CQC with information which will help identify areas of concern thereby enabling the CQC to examine issues and or trends arising more swiftly.   Read More.
