Do day care activities services get inspected by CQC?
Day Care facilities are not a registered service and therefore are not inspected by CQC. However, they are subject to other parts of the law including Health and Safety and Food Hygiene if they are preparing food.
If day care is provided within a care home then CQC will have an interest in it and will want to be sure that the home has both the space and enough staff to care for both home's service users and the people in receipt of day care.
