We are the Care Quality Commission (CQC). We have a clear and unambiguous purpose; we make sure health and social care services in England provide people with safe, effective, compassionate and high-quality care.

Welcome to our new site packed full of useful content to help you understand how we can help you make choices around your care, get involved in our work and tell us about your experiences of care.
