Following on from work conducted in 2017 and 2018, this briefing assesses the state of care home performance across England and looks at what is being done to tackle poor performance.

We have used publicly available CQC inspection data (taken from January 2019) to work out a total figure for the percentage of care homes in each local authority that are rated either “Inadequate” or “Requires Improvement”. Using research from the last two years we have tracked which areas have demonstrated improvement and which have worsened.

This briefing also outlines how we as an organisation want to see care home quality develop and what factors are key to ensuring that care home quality does improve.
