VODG encourages providers and commissioners to use CQC’s latest evidence to make a continued step up in quality

CQC have published the state of adult social care services 2014 to 2017. Commenting on the publication VODG (Voluntary Organisations Disability Group) chief executive, Dr Rhidian Hughes said:

“This report provides a welcome, authoritative, contribution on the state of adult social care. At a time when the sector is being financially pushed to the brink, CQC’s assessments on the quality of care have never been so important.”

He goes on to say:

“The vast majority of services are good and this is a great credit to the sector’s workforce. But there remains considerable variation in quality across the market and it is unacceptable that some people find themselves exposed to poor and inadequate services. VODG is encouraging providers and commissioners to use CQC’s evidence to inform a continued step up in quality, and to share what works well across the sector.”
