The Care Quality Commission has published its annual report on 'The state of health care and adult social care in England 2017/18'.

The highlights are:

  • Most people in England receive a good quality of care.
  • But quality is not consistent, and access to good care increasingly depends on where in the country you live and the type of support you need.
  • Despite the continuing challenges that providers face, this quality of care has been largely maintained, and in some cases improved.
  • Some people can easily access good care. Others cannot access the services they need, they experience disjointed care, or only have access to providers with poor services.
  • People’s experiences are often determined by how well different parts of local systems work together.
