CQC’s interactive map shows how care homes are performing

The Care Quality Commission’s (CQC) chief inspector of Adult Social Care, Andrea Sutcliffe, has launched a new online resource to make it easier for people to see how care homes have been rated in their local area.

This online tool comes at a time when the regulator has rated nearly 10,000 care homes (both with and without nursing) across the country, based on its inspection regime that was rolled out in October 2014.

Nearly two thirds (64%) of all active care homes rated so far have been judged by CQC as providing ‘Good’ standards of care.

Andrea Sutcliffe, said: “When people are considering a care home, either for themselves or a loved one, knowing about the quality of care being provided is a crucial part of the decision making process.

“Through our new online map, I am delighted that for the first time we are able to show a visual and emerging picture of the care homes we have rated as Outstanding, Good, Requires Improvement and Inadequate so far.”
