In England, Care Quality Commission (CQC) involvement and assessment has not progressed during the year, in part because of the challenges posed by Covid-19. CQC continue to give assurance that they will engage with the treatment sector and are exploring ways of delivering virtual inspections.
This is a model that could create opportunities to expand engagement and extend the work with gambling treatment services.
