    New partnership launched to explore older people’s experiences of care

    The Care Quality Commission (CQC) have launched a six-month partnership with Age UK to explore older people’s experiences of care.

    This latest ‘tell us about your care’ partnership is one of six projects they currently have with national organisations that are in a unique position to reach, and be reached, by people who may choose to discuss concerns about the way they are receiving health and adult social care or identify examples of best practice.

    CQC’s Chief Inspector of Adult Social Care, Andrea Sutcliffe, said: “It is great to have Age UK working with us. Through their network, they can assist us to reach out to millions of people who may have information that can help us take action against poor care and celebrate great services.

    “Through our ‘tell us about your care’ partnerships, anyone can share their views and concerns about services. We use this information so we can make sure people get safe, effective, compassionate and high-quality health and adult social care – whether that’s in their own home, a care home, hospital, general practice or any other service.”
