Presentation by Andrea Sutcliffe (Chief Inspector of Adult Social Care) to the National Children and Adult Services Conference 2014
Friday 31st October 2014, 10.30am

October 2014 marks Andrea Sutcliffe’s first anniversary in the post as Chief Inspector for Adult Social Care, and the roll-out of CQC’s new approach to the regulation and inspection of adult social care.

This session was perfectly timed then for delegates to hear and debate Andrea’s reflections on the year gone by, progress to date and priorities for the future.

Delegates had a chance to hear about how the new approach is shaping up, the early waves of inspection, and the development and publication of ratings, which are just beginning. Andrea also highlighted key points from CQC’s annual report to Parliament on the ‘State of Care’ and the latest report on dementia services.
