May 31, 2011

Consensus Support is part of Caring Homes Group. Caring Homes Group is known for the superior quality of care and support it provides a reputation that is cemented by the high Care Quality Commission (CQC) rating of many of the homes. Latest figures show that overall 83% of properties in the Caring Homes group are rated good or above, while 14% are rated excellent. These ratings are vital to the continued success of Caring Homes, and so it is important to fully understand the CQC and what it does.


The CQC is the independent regulator of health and social care in England. They regulate health and adult social care services, whether provided by the NHS, voluntary organisations, private companies or local authorities. The CQC analyses and inspects services by asking providers to assess themselves and by collecting information to monitor how services are performing.
