The Care Quality Commission (CQC), published its first equal opportunities and human rights scheme in 2010 to help put people and their rights at the heart of health and adult social care services. This report looks at the progress CQC made in delivering its scheme during its first year, and also provides revised equality and human rights priorities for 2011/12 and beyond. The report also provides an action plan and information on equality to contribute to CQC's new responsibilities under the Equality Act 2010.
