Care Quality Commission publish their State of Care Report 2018/19
The report tells us what the CQC found out about health and social care services in England last year.
What it discovered was most of the care is getting a little bit better but some things need to be improved. The report also states that where really good care is seen it is usually because a service is doing something new or different and often this is because 1 person or a small number of people wanted to make a difference. The change could be using technology in a better way to meet peoples needs, although there are not enough examples of care services and organisations coming together to make new technology work to improve the quality of care for people.
