Following the easing of restrictions in England, the CQC has updated its regulatory approach.

From 1 February, it says it will inspect where:

  • There is evidence that people are at risk of harm. This applies to all health and social care services, including those where inspections were previously postponed except in cases where we had evidence of risk to life
  • It can support increasing capacity across the system, particularly in adult social care
  • A focus on the urgent and emergency care system will help us understand the pressures, where local or national support is needed, and share good practice to drive improvement

Much of the CQC’s approach is unchanged and remains in line with the update from our Chief Inspectors on 10 December 2021
