Requirements for registration with the Care Quality Commission: response to consultations on fundamental standards, the duty of candour and the fit and proper persons requirement for directors
Department of Health Consultation:
From April 2015, subject to parliamentary approval, all health and social care providers will be required to meet fundamental standards of care as a condition of their registration with the Care Quality Commission. The fundamental standards are intended to describe the basic requirements that providers should always meet, and set the standard of care that service users should always expect to receive. The responses to this consultation were used to improve the drafting of the fundamental standards regulations and this document outlines these changes in more detail.
