Care Quality Commission

The Care Quality Commission (CQC) are a regulatory service to ensure health and social care services provide safe, high-quality care. They monitor and inspect health and social care services to make sure they meet standards of quality and safety, resulting in published performance ratings to enable service users to choose care.

All health and social care providers that are regulated by the CQC are required to display their most recent CQC rating. You can find Peterborough City Council's rating displayed on the getting support webpage.
