This is a great opportunity for people to stay up-to-date with health and social care provision at the places that matter to them. We all want to make sure that the care we receive or arrange for others is of the best possible quality. The Care Quality Commission's alerts will make it easier for people to get involved in the process and remain informed about care in their area.
The Commission carries out unannounced inspections of services - both on a regular basis and in response to concerns - and investigates why care fails to improve. The new email alerts will automatically inform people when the organisation carries out an inspection or publishes a report about a location in which they have expressed an interest.
