Information for adult social care services from the CQC during the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak

Wednesday, July 15, 2020

The Care Quality Commission (CQC) have published answers to questions that adult social care providers have asked them during the coronavirus outbreak. They have dated their answers so adult social care providers can see how recent the questions and answers are and broken the questions down into areas, such as Regulation, Data collections and Staff.

You can view these commonly asked questions and answers on their website here. The CQC will continue to update their page as changes occur during the COVID-19 outbreak and further questions are asked.

There is lots of useful information on this page and definitely worth looking at if you are unsure of the emergency support framework (ESF), DBS fast track process, regulation changes and much more.
