The Care Quality Commission regulates Village Care Ltd. This government body oversees healthcare settings, including hospitals, care homes, dental and GP surgeries, and more, and its focus is on the people in these settings. They provide people with safe, effective, compassionate, high-quality care and are encouraged to improve where needed.

The Care Quality Commission:

  • Set standards of quality and service that people can expect whenever they receive care.
  • Monitor, inspect and regulate care services to ensure they continue to meet the standards.
  • Protect the rights of vulnerable people, including those whose rights are restricted under the Mental Health Act.


At Village Care Ltd, we fully support and embrace the work undertaken by the CQC to ensure that the services we provide are of the highest possible standard. The CQC regularly inspects us, and you can read our latest inspection reports by following the link on the CQC website.
