VODG welcomes CQC’s new report, Driving Improvement

Findings from the Care Quality Commission’s Driving Improvement report – exploring how adult social care services from across the country have managed to turn around their inspection quality rating from ‘inadequate’ to ‘good’ – show that the recruitment and retention of capable, valued and supported staff has never been more critical to achieving the high quality care everyone has a right to expect.

Commenting on the launch of the report Rhidian Hughes, VODG chief executive said:

“Driving Improvement is an important resource for first line leaders and managers working in social care today. It takes us beyond the determinants of poor quality care towards a much richer, and practical, understanding of how to move services from inadequate to good.

The report offers important insights and clearly shows that with a committed workforce, supported by strong leaders, services can make a positive step change in delivering good quality care.”
