The CQC has announced that there will be changes in the way which it carries out inspections and that most hospitals, care homes and domiciliary care providers will be inspected every year, whilst other providers, such as dentists, can expect an inspection at least every two years. Additional inspectors have been appointed to carry out these inspections and more information may be found at: http://www.cqc.org.uk/public/news/inspection-changesunderway.
