The Care Quality Commission [CQC] is the independent regulator of health and adult social care in England. It is responsible for ensuring health and social care services provide people with safe, effective, compassionate and high-quality care.
As a hospice care provider we constantly work to ensure we are compliant with all CQC regulations and expectations. Woking Hospice was last inspected on 03 December 2019 and we were assessed as compliant across the board and given an overall ‘Good’ rating.
During their very thorough visit the Care Quality Commission assessed us against five questions common to all current inspections:
- Is the service safe?
- Is the service effective?
- Is the service caring?
- Is the service responsive?
- Is the service well-led?
We achieved a ‘Good’ rating for all the above.
