CQC assessment of council adult social services

CQC has published the results of the latest annual performance assessment of councils responsible for adult social care services.

The findings show that councils continued to commission a high standard of adult social care throughout 2009/10.

• 95% (145) of all 152 councils were assessed as performing well or excellently.
• The seven remaining councils were assessed as performing adequately, and must improve.
• For the seventh year running, no councils were rated poor.
• Joint commissioning and monitoring of services were more common, and this was a key strength in half of all councils.
• Areas such as dignity and respect, choice and control, and emotional health and well-being continued to improve.
