A number of health authorities in the UK are planning to launch their own care repair programmes.
They are set to make the move from the NHS Care Quality Commission (CQC) to the National Health Service (NHS) Care Quality Improvement Agency (CZA) in 2018, after the latter was set up by the Conservative-led coalition government.
But the CZA is also looking to expand its role and has been tasked with creating a national body to monitor the delivery of care.
In a statement, the Cza said: “This new role will enable the CQC to provide a range of services and provide the necessary support to deliver the most appropriate care for patients, staff and the public.”
The CZA will be working with the NHS to establish a new national body, which will be tasked with providing a range in health and social care to the NHS and provide a national framework to manage the delivery and delivery of the Care Quality Indicators, which monitor the level of quality and care delivery within the NHS.
The Cza also wants to expand the role of the CSA to include the delivery, assessment and control of services delivered through the Care Work Programme.
“We are committed to delivering on the ambition of the national healthcare plan and our new role is to ensure that our national services are delivering the best care for our people,” the CZA said.
Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt said: “The NHS will continue to be a key part of our national strategy for the NHS, with our health leaders, doctors, nurses, social care professionals, and all stakeholders working together to improve patient care and ensure quality of care in the care we deliver.”
“It is important to recognise that the CDA will be a much bigger job for us, but I am confident that we can work together to deliver it,” he added.
However, the NHS says that the new role could have unintended consequences, and has launched an internal consultation on the issue.
It is currently not possible to have an independent inspection of any care delivery scheme or care scheme operated by a healthcare provider.
This means that any individual who provides a care service to a patient or to their family, will have to be identified and assessed by a professional.
A Care Quality Assessment is currently carried out by the CPA, a body which is not accountable to any government department or authority.
Although the CBA has made a commitment to deliver care to all patients, it is also required to provide guidance to healthcare providers on the appropriate management of care that is delivered to those patients.
While the CTA will be taking a “care first” approach to ensuring that care is delivered in the most effective way possible, the Department of Health says that it will also “provide the right level of supervision and accountability to ensure patients and carers receive the highest level of care”.
“The CTA is committed to providing the best service possible to all of our patients and will deliver it to all,” a spokesman for the Department said.
“This will involve us providing the right care, with the right management of the care.”
He added that the Care Improvement Agency would be able to provide advice to the CCA about what is best for patients.
“The CCA will have the capacity to give feedback to the Care Care Improvement Authority to provide direction to ensure care delivered by the Care Change Agency is delivering the highest quality,” he said.
