The Care Quality Commission (CQC) regulates mental health providers to ensure they meet the minimum fundamental standards as set out in legislation. The CQC uses its inspection methodology to understand how a provider is meeting these standards and publishes a report and rating. The CQC publishes a range of information for providers, including case studies and thematic reports focused on good practice.

NHS England and NHS Improvement support providers to deliver the aims of the NHS Long Term Plan. This focuses on ensuring that all providers are providing the best possible care, which may then be reflected in a good or outstanding rating from the CQC.
