Is it more difficult to get a good rating?

Out of 501 care home inspection reports that CQC posted to their website during the past month:

  •  3% received an "outstanding" rating - 14 services
  • 52% received a "good" rating - 263 services
  • 35% received a "needs improvement" rating - 177 services
  •   9% received an "inadequate" rating - 47 services

Many services that were inspected in 2016 and received a good rating, in 2018 are now being rated as needs improvement.

This is because the new inspection framework that came into effect in November 2017 is not being implemented into many services.

Care Home Support and Training can help.
