The return of CQC assessments of council adults’ services: What it means for you

27/03/2023 15:30 - 16:30

The Care Quality Commission is due to start assessing local authorities’ performance on their adult social care duties from April this year, following the passage of the Health and Care Act 2022. While councils continue to be assessed on children’s social care performance, adults’ services have not been evaluated since 2010. In this session, the CQC will set out its plans for assessing council performance and what this will mean for practitioners and managers.

Attend this session to:

  • Learn about the standards against which the CQC will assess councils’ performance
  • Understand how the CQC will carry out inspections and the extent to which they will examine the practice of social workers and occupational therapists and the support they get
  • Find out about the consequences of poor assessments for local authorities
