The quality of your service Click to get info
Services that are staffed by registered nurses or provide treatment for particular conditions, will need to be registered with the Care Quality Commission (CQC) and will be subject to standards and inspections. You can search by service name on the CQC website to check.
Day centres run by charities or other independent organisations may or may not be regulated and registered, depending on what they provide. They should however be able to give you details of their quality checks and details of feedback from people who have used their service.
