State of Care - CQC's annual overview of health and social care in England now available

Demands are increasing on health and social care. State of Care – our annual overview of health and social care in England – looks at the trends, highlights examples of good and outstanding care, and identifies factors that maintain high-quality care.

Most services provide people with good care, but variation exists. Some care services are closing, increasing pressure on other services including GPs and hospitals. Strong leadership and collaboration will be important to ensure services improve and quality is maintained.

The ratings picture

This year's report provides the most comprehensive view yet of our expert-led inspections.

Our inspections have found that many health and care services in England are providing good quality care despite a challenging environment, but that substantial variation remains.

In most cases, our inspections lead to services being given a rating to help people make informed choices about their care. Enter an address in the map below to explore ratings of acute hospitals, GP practices and adult social care services.
