Care Quality Commission (CQC)
The Care Quality Commission (CQC) inspect and report on all social care services in England and Wales. As the social care watchdog, their mandate is to raise standards and stamp out bad practice, making social care better for the people receiving care.
Our most recent inspection was completed in 2013, the results of which, once again, stated Ashton Homecare as being fully compliant. The inspection consisted of an unannounced visit to our offices plus contact with current customers and employees.
