CQC updates statement on safeguarding


The Care Quality Commission (CQC) continue to work with their partners to look more closely at issues of safeguarding.  CQC have published a statement on safeguarding, which sets out the regulator’s roles and responsibilities for safeguarding and how it carries them out.

This follows the legislative changes and the introduction of the new inspection regime for health and adult social care services in England.  CQC have updated their information on how they work with their partners to make sure people are protected from abuse, neglect and maltreatment.

Sally Warren, Deputy Chief Inspector for Adult Social Care and lead on safeguarding at the Care Quality Commission said: "Safeguarding is everyone's business and CQC has an important role to play alongside our partners. People who use services are at the heart of everything we do.

"Our new safeguarding statement provides a timely update about our roles and responsibilities. It underlines the importance of playing our part effectively, keeping people who use services are at the heart of our work, and acting promptly and appropriately to help keep them safe

The statement on CQC’s Roles and Responsibilities for Safeguarding Children and Adults is available on the CQC’s website.
