The Care Quality Commission (CQC) is the independent regulator of health and social care in England. The CQC makes sure that we provide high standards of care and treatment and that we look after the interests of people whose rights are restricted under the Mental Health Act.
The CQC monitors our performance by visiting our sites, carrying out patient surveys and by collecting and analysing information about our performance. The findings are published in a report on the CQC's website so everyone can see them.
Statement of purpose
We are required to develop and publish a statement of purpose. The aim is to ensure that people who use services benefit from the knowledge that the CQC is informed of the services being provided.
