How to check the identity of a CQC inspector
The Care Quality Commission (CQC) have been made aware that a small number of providers have been contacted by people posing as CQC inspectors. Genuine inspectors visiting in person carry ID badges that include:
- a photograph of the inspector on the front
- a copy of our warrant on the reverse
- the signature of our Chief Executive David Behan (older ID badges may have the signature of Cynthia Bower).
If you are unsure about the identity of an inspector, please contact CQC's enquiries team on 03000 616161. For more information, see CQC's website.
