Care Quality Commission (CQC) released its report on the State of health care and adult social care in England for 2017/18. The report found that while most people in England receive a good quality of care, the quality is not consistent, and access to good care increasingly depends on where in the country you live and the type of support you need. Despite the continuing challenges that providers face, this quality of care has been largely maintained, and in some cases improved. Some people can easily access good care. Others cannot access the services they need, they experience disjointed care, or only have access to providers with poor services. People’s experiences are often determined by how well different parts of local systems work together.
