CQC seeks views of substance-misuse sector

The Care Quality Commission is updating its advice to inspectors, and seeks views by 5 September.

CQC consultation – Substance misuse, Aug 2014

Sent on behalf of Violeta Ainslie…

Dear colleague,

Please find attached CQC’s current supporting information that is provided to inspectors around the Substance Misuse sector. It is a couple of years old now (note references to the NTA!), so I wanted to review and revise it as necessary. I appreciate people will have various degrees of time to commit to reviewing it so whatever feedback you can provide will be much appreciated. Bullet points is fine or track changes to the whole document – whatever is easiest for you.

The cut-off date for this is Friday 5 September.

Many thanks,



Alex Metcalfe
