The Care Quality Commission (CQC) is the independent regulator for health and social care in England. They regulate hospitals, care homes, doctors, dentists, mental health services, community services and more.
They are always looking for feedback from us, the people being treated, on the ways that the services can be improved (or, indeed, where things are going well!).
For September and October 2020, the CQC are particularly interested to hear from people with long-term and invisible conditions.
The funding has come from the HS2 Business and Local Economy Fund (BLEF), part of a combined total of £40 million in funding available to local communities and businesses that are demonstrably disrupted by the construction of Britain’s new high speed railway between London and the West Midlands. This is the largest award that has been made from the Funds to date and the project will join the other 113 projects between London and the West Midlands that have also benefited.
