CQC reports are required by law, with care homes in England responsible for making sure that the care they provide meets national standards of quality and safety. The Care Quality Commission (CQC) registers and inspects care homes to make sure they are meeting national standards. They can inspect a care home at any time and inspections are almost always unannounced.
Currently, the four homes in the Constantia Healthcare group – Roseleigh and Longlands in Middlesbrough, Queen’s Lodge in Blackburn and Lilibet Manor in Rossendale – are all rated as Good by the CQC.
The five key standards that make up CQC inspection are Safe, Effective, Caring, Responsive and Well-Led, and we work continuously to ensure we are meeting and exceeding these standards because we take our regulatory responsibilities very seriously.
