Cumbria County Council - Cumbria Care CQC ratings

As part of our commitment to providing the public with the information they need to make choices about their care or the care for the people they support we have provided a link to the reports and ratings of all of our regulated services conducted by the industry regulator, The Care Quality Commission (CQC). This also helps ensure we are in compliance with our obligations to The Care Quality Commission.

To find a list of our services and their ratings please use the link provided on the noticeboard on the right hand side of this page or alternatively, view our ratings table below.

You can also visit the Care Quality Commission's website at

When inspecting our services, the regulator asks five key questions:

  • Are they safe?

  • Are they effective?

  • Are they caring?

  • Are they responsive to peoples needs?

  • Are they well-led?

In most cases, CQC inspection reports include one of four ratings.  These ratings can assist you to make choices about care and compare services.  Those ratings are:

We have placed our latest CQC ratings in the table below. You can access the most up to date CQC report (PDF) for each service by clicking on the link however, a number of our services are still awaiting to be inspected under the new CQC framework.
