The Nuffield Trust’s report has found that ratings for social care services, delivered by the CQC, would go some way in filling the public information gap on care quality and hopefully boost choice for users. The report was commissioned by government and the findings have been backed by Health Secretary, Jeremy Hunt.  Overall ratings for services were scrapped in 2010 to many within the sectors’ dismay. This proposal could go some way to filling the gap in the provision of trusted information on the quality of individual care services. The report found that ratings could enhance choice for families and increase providers’ performance. Although it will not affect all providers (those not registered with the CQC) it may well help small effective providers who could now stand out again larger local providers.
