CQC ratings to be displayed across care services

People using health or care services will soon be able to see first-hand if we have judged them as Outstanding, Good, Requires Improvement or Inadequate. New rules mean health and care providers will have to make arrangements to prominently display their CQC rating, helping people make more informed choices. Following public consultation, we have issued guidance on how performance ratings should be displayed and developed display material.

See our press release ‘Public to see CQC ratings displayed across care services‘. CQC News Story – Published April...
