People using health or care services will soon be able to see first-hand if we have judged them as Outstanding, Good, Requires Improvement or Inadequate.
New rules mean health and care providers will have to make arrangements to prominently display their CQC rating, helping people make more informed choices.
Following public consultation, we have issued guidance on how performance ratings should be displayed and developed display material. People can expect to start seeing CQC ratings on provider websites as well as across premises, public entrances and waiting areas of care services from 1 April. Providers who have already been rated have 21 days from 1 April to comply.
