CQC inspectors come calling at Care Home Open Day

CQC inspectors and other staff will visit care homes in England to talk about their work

More than 100 Care Quality Commission (CQC) inspectors and other staff will visit care homes in England to talk about their work on June 19.

They are taking part in the annual Care Home Open Day, which sees thousands of care homes across the UK open their doors to the public to meet residents and staff and join in events and activities around the home.

The CQC staff will talk about the organisation’s work in monitoring, inspecting and rating care services.

CQC adult social care inspector for the north region Diane Wilkinson said: ‘To see that natural, informal and wonderful relationship between people, their families, visitors and staff is seeing a care home at its best.’

The day is a ‘wonderful opportunity to recognise and value all of the good care and fabulous staff that we know exists day in, day out’, CQC chief inspector of adult social care Andrea Sutcliffe added.
