Whilst the national plan has set some clear goals, it’s up to local areas to decide how they’re achieved. Have your say and help the NHS invest in the right support.

CQC declare your care
CQC 'Declare your Care' campaign

The Care Quality Commission (CQC) is calling for people to speak up about their experiences of care, as new research shows that people in the South East regret not raising concerns about their care, while people who do raise concerns, do see improvements.
