Suffolk celebrates CQC success

Suffolk’s recent Care Quality Commission statistics are in and Suffolk is now top of the table for comparator local authority areas.

In Suffolk, 89.04% of Adult Social Care locations are rated as ‘Good’ or ‘Outstanding’ by the Care Quality Commission, the standards agency for adult care. 

When it comes to the national rankings, Suffolk is performing equally well. Ranked as fourth nationally for ‘Good’ or ‘Outstanding’ rated care locations, Suffolk shines out as a great area for adult social care.

This is particularly impressive when it is considered that Suffolk has over 100 more adult social care locations than any of the other areas listed in the top ten.

Councillor Rebecca Hopfensperger, Cabinet Member for Adult Care, said:

“This is an incredible achievement and something that is worth celebrating. This to me, illustrates that Suffolk is a great place for Adult Social Care, with a wealth of care providers who do fantastic work.

“There are of course, still areas where we can improve and I know work is continuing to raise standards where it is required, but I am confident that we are working hard to address any concerns.

“These results make me incredibly proud and grateful to our care providers for the fantastic way that we are caring for local people.”
