Care Quality Commission (CQC)

The Care Quality Commission (CQC) is the independent regulatory of health and social care in England.  It makes sure that health and social care services provide people with safe, effective, compassionate and high-quality care. 


All health and adult social care providers who provide regulated activities are required by law to be registered with the CQC. Providers must show they are meeting the required standards of quality and safety. 

Epsom and St Helier University Hospitals NHS Trust, as the lead provider for the Sutton Health and Care Alliance, holds the registration with the CQC for the partnership.
