What we do
We monitor, inspect and regulate services to make sure they meet fundamental standards of quality and safety and we publish what we find, including performance ratings to help people choose care.
Standards of care
We set out what good and outstanding care looks like and we make sure services meet fundamental standards below which care must never fall.
Where we find poor care, we will use our powers to take action.
How we work
We carry out a range of inspections and visits in addition to our regular regulation and inspection programme.
