Our registration with the Care Quality Commission
As a provider of NHS services, CityCare is required to register with the Care Quality Commission (CQC) - the independent regulator of all health and social care services in England. It must comply with the regulations of the Health and Social Care Act 2008 and ensure that essential standards of quality and safety are monitored and maintained. Click to see our Certificate of Registration.
The CQC carries out regular inspections to check that all services continue to meet required standards and it shares this information with the public.
As part of this process a CQC inspection team observes the care we provide, talks to our staff and talks to the people who receive our services. Nottingham CityCare Partnership currently meets all the required CQC standards for the services it provides.
Here are our registrations for two locations: our Standard Court Head Office and the Urgent Care Centre in Nottingham.
The Statement of Purpose gives details about our registration with the CQC. It contains details about our aims and objectives, provides details about our registered locations and includes information about the services we deliver under the terms of our registration.
Find out more about our registration on the Care Quality Commission website.
Our Annual Quality Accounts
Quality Accounts are produced by all providers of NHS-funded healthcare and focus on the quality of the services provided. They look at: where an organisation is performing well and where it needs to make improvements; progress against quality priorities set previously and new priorities for the following year and how the public, patients, carers and staff have been involved in decisions on these priorities.
The easy read version of the 2015/16 Quality Account is available here.

The Bribery Act 2010
The Bribery Act 2010 came into force on 1 July 2011, aiming to tackle bribery and corruption in both the private and public sector.
Nottingham CityCare Partnership CIC welcomes the Act and, in line with commitments to ensuring that the work we do remains fair, honest and free of bribery, we are keen to ensure we comply with the Act’s standards.
As an organisation representing NHS values we follow good business practice and have robust controls in place to prevent bribery. In addition, we have tested internal procedures to thoroughly investigate if any claims of bribery or corruption are made.
One of the six principles of the Act demands that there is top level commitment to the prevention of bribery and this is most certainly the case at Nottingham CityCare Partnership CIC. Work is underway to ensure our policies are updated and consistent, that business partners are fully assessed, and that our staff understand the importance of openness at all times.
On behalf of the Board I confirm our commitment to ensuring that Nottingham CityCare Partnership CIC is free of bribery and corruption.
