North West Ambulance Service NHS Trust (NWAS) is to be inspected by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) from 23 May 2016. The CQC is the independent health and adult social care regulator. Its job is to check whether hospitals, ambulance services, care homes, GPs, dentists and services in patients’ homes are meeting national standards. It looks at a lot of information to help it to design its inspections and takes into account patients’ experiences of care and those of their families and friends, to help it decide what it needs to look at during an inspection. Patients who have used the Trust’s emergency, patient transport or NHS 111 services in the last 12 months (and their families) are encouraged to give feedback online at www.cqc.org.uk/syeNWAS.
