What Is The Care Quality Commission?

by Thursday, September 20, 2018

At Face the Future, we pride ourselves on quality, ethics and transparency to ensure the highest of clinical standards are met. How do we do this? Through our Care Quality Commission registration

The Care Quality Commission (CQC) is the independent watchdog for healthcare in England. The Care Quality Commission assesses and reports on the quality and safety of services provided by the NHS and the independent healthcare sector, and work to improve services for patients and the public.

When registering independent providers, the Care Quality Commission ensures that they meet the minimum standard of practice. This includes the quality of treatment, checks of premises and equipment, qualifications and skills of staff, policies and procedures, training and professional development, and complaints procedures.

The aim of the Care Quality Commission is to safeguard patients and promote continuous improvement in healthcare services for patients, carers and the public through annual checks against set targets. It inspects the quality and value for money of healthcare and public health and performance using standards set out by the Department of Health and best available evidence. Ultimately, the Care Quality Commission endeavour to provide people with the most complete picture available of how your local healthcare organisations are performing.

We would like to congratulate our new Registered Manager, Emily. Many of you will know Emily as your Clinical Aesthetician, and after 7 years she is now registered with the CQC for clinical management.
