Quality Care Commission seeking case studies from people aged 65+

Care Quality CommissionA recent CQC survey found that people aged 65+ have much lower level of awareness of CQC than average, however they are very regular users of health and social care. As they may know a lot about the quality of care, we want to encourage more of them to share their experiences with CQC. To do this, CQC will be launching a multi-channel media campaign in March targeting older people.

They are looking for case studies and would appreciate your help.

CQC want to hear about your experiences of health and social care for a media campaign they will be running in March. Specifically, they are looking to hear from men and women aged 65+ who are accessing health and social care regularly and are happy to share their experiences of care – good or bad. 

CQC are also looking for people who might be happy to be part of a video about older people’s experiences of health and social care. CQC are looking for:

  • Men and women 65+ who are happy to share their experiences of health and social care
  • A parent (65+) and their adult child or carer who are happy to discuss their experiences of health and social care

If you are happy to talk to CQC about your experiences of care, please send an email to yourstories@cqc.org.uk leaving a short description of your experience. Someone from CQC will then be in touch with you to discuss next steps.
