What is the Care Quality Commission (CQC) Emergency Support Framework (ESF)?
The CQC acknowledges the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic continues to present immense challenges on how care is delivered across health and social care. There are increased risks for service users, both with coronavirus or without it, whose treatment and care is being affected either directly or indirectly as a result.
To enable the CQC to identify such risks and respond appropriately, they have developed an Emergency Support Framework (ESF). This has been designed to be flexible and facilitate the CQC to respond to the changing needs of the health and social care system during this period.
