Quality of care homes

We regularly review the quality of care homes within the city to make sure that they meet certain standards of care, quality and safety.

Brighton & Hove City Council and Brighton & Hove Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) are responsible for these reviews.

We have strict monitoring arrangements in place and produce reports on the services we visit.

How it works

When a care home does not reach an acceptable standard of quality, the Care Quality Commission works to improve standards.

All care homes must be registered with the Care Quality Commission, the independent organisation that monitors, inspects and regulates all health and social care services in England.

They also publish information about what they find, including performance ratings, to make sure they meet standards of quality and to help people choose care.
