State of health and care in England


The annual assessment of health and social care by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) provides a treasure trove of information about the state of services in England. Based on inspections of 21,256 adult social care services, 152 NHS acute trusts, 197 independent acute hospitals, 18 NHS community health trusts, 54 NHS mental health trusts, 226 independent mental health locations, 10 NHS ambulance trusts, and 7,028 primary care services over three years, the assessment offers grounds for concern and reassurance in equal measure.

You can read a summary of the report and its findings on the Kings Fund Website.
