New guidance for inspectors and assessors

The Care Quality Commission and Equality and Human Rights Commission launched joint guidance on equality and human rights for inspectors and assessors

We worked with the Care Quality Commission to produce the draft guidance. We also involved people who use services through the Care Quality Commission’s Voices for Equality and Human Rights group, as well as the Care Quality Commission’s staff equality networks. We held a public consultation on the draft guidance.

The consultation closed on 12 November 2010. Thank you for all of your responses. Officials at the Equality and Human Rights Commission and Care Quality Commission are now analysing these and will be producing a summary report of responses and recommendations for amendments to the guidance. This report and the guidance will be published online at the end of January 2011.
