The CQC mainly work within the health sector to ensure that the care that is being provided is at a high standard, safe and effective for the service users. The quality of care would be monitored by a series of inspections in health settings such as care homes, hospitals, GP surgeries and many other health organisations. The responsibility of the Care Quality Commission is to recognise where effective care is being carried out and the areas in which improvements can be made. This would be a continuous cycle that changes according to whether relevant laws are put into place and the experiences of service users.

The CQC also have a responsibility to carry out in-depth investigations to be certain that health care providers are following the standards that the CQC have set.
