Care Quality Commission registration

The Care Quality Commission (CQC) is the independent regulator of all health and adult social care in England.  From 1 October 2010, all health and adult social care providers became legally responsible for making sure they meet essential standards of quality and safety, and must be licensed with the CQC.  

The CQC will register, and therefore license, providers of health and social care services if they meet the essential standards, and monitors providers to make sure they continue to meet these standards.

University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust (UHB) is licensed by the CQC to provide services at Queen Elizabeth Medical Centre and at Selly Oak Hospital.

The Trust undertakes the following "regulated activities" (as defined in the Health and Social Care Act 2008) at both hospital sites:

  • Treatment of disease, disorder or injury
  • Surgical procedures
  • Diagnostic and screening procedures
  • Services in slimming clinics

Additionally, the Trust undertakes the following "regulated activities" at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham site only:

  • Management of supply of blood and blood derived products etc
  • Assessment or medical treatment for persons detained under the 1983 (Mental Health) Act
  • Family planning services

Further information about the CQC and UHB’s licence is available on the Care Quality Commission website.

Anyone can share their individual experience and feedback about our services with the CQC by phone, post or email – information about how to do this is also available on their website.
