CQC 2021 strategy focusing on research

Published: 27 May 2021 in

The independent regulator of health and social care in England, the Care Quality Commission (CQC), has today published its new strategy, recognising the benefits of clinical research to patient outcomes. The prominence of research in the strategy is welcome and follows discussion and engagement with the Society and partner organisations in the clinical research community.
 
In our formal submission to the consultation, the Society called for explicit inclusion research in the strategy, noting the opportunity for the regulator to drive progress when it comes to embedding research into patient care. We also made recommendations to support patient safety through the safe and effective use of medicines, including improved monitoring of patient safety metrics.
