CQC enforcement update: Financial penalties on the increase

A recent prosecution by CQC of a care home provider represents the ‘final piece of the jigsaw’ in terms of CQC’s enforcement powers for the health and social care sector. The case provides a severe warning to providers of the sorts of financial penalties which can flow from non-compliance in the new enforcement environment.

Connecting housing, care and health

The NHS is under considerable pressure as a result of people living longer, often with complex long-term conditions, as well as being unable to discharge patients who no longer need to be treated in a hospital setting. In general terms, there is a clear and obvious link between health and the quality of the homes in which people live.

Vanguards and new models of care

The Vanguards projects are one of the key components of the 'Five Year Forward View' which is supported by NHS England, the Care Quality Commission, Health Education England, Monitor, the NHS Trust Development Authority, Public Health England and the National Institute for Health & Care Excellence.
