This public body is responsible for ensuring the safety and quality of health and social services provided to people who use such services. The Care Quality Commission also assesses the performance of commissioners and providers, monitors the operation of the Mental Health Act and ensures coordination and management of all activities across health and adult social care.

The Care Quality Commission manages registration of all health and social care providers; this means that all health and social care providers must undergo initial registration before granted permission to perform such services. Care providers must demonstrate that they can meet, or are already meeting the registration requirements. Maintaining to demonstrate their ability to meet standards is required to continuous registration.
