State of Care report launched

State of Care report launched Today marks the launch of the State of Care report, an annual overview of health and adult social care in England.

Analysis shows that, despite increasingly challenging circumstances, many services have managed to either improve or maintain quality. More than 80 per cent of GP practices and six out of ten of adult social care services inspected  have been rated as good or outstanding. Of the hospitals rated, 38 per cent were also found to be good or outstanding.

However, alongside these encouraging findings, there remains significant variation in quality and an unacceptable level of poor care. Up to 31 May 2015, 7 per cent of acute, primary medical and adult social care services had been rated as inadequate.

Safety is our biggest concern across all of the services we inspect. Over one in 10 hospitals and a similar proportion of adult social care services have been rated as inadequate for safety, alongside 6 per cent of GP practices and out-of-hours services. Care Quality Commission
