CQC to increase inspections on dignity and nutrition

Topics covered: Ridouts professional advice

CQC have announced that they plan to inspect a further 50 NHS hospitals and 500 adult social care services in 2012 to evaluate the quality of dignity and nutrition afforded to service users.

The original dignity and nutrition review was conducted by CQC between March and June 2011 when they reviewed 100 NHS hospitals.

The 50 NHS hospitals that will be inspected next year will be a combination of hospitals that raised concerns during the original review and a new sample of other locations.

CQC will also look at dignity and nutrition in 500 care homes around the country. This process will start early next year and CQC plans to involve people with experience of the services.

A national report is planned for the autumn.
