We work with the East of England Ambulance Service NHS Trust and a number of other charities. As a medical charity we are governed by a board of non-executive trustees and regulated by the Care Quality Commission
The Care Quality Commision (CQC)
The CQC is the independent regulator of health and adult social care in England. It makes sure organisations such as EAAA provide people with safe, effective, compassionate, high-quality care and encourages care services to improve.
It monitors, inspects and regulates services to make sure they meet fundamental standards of quality and safety. Reports and performance ratings are published on their website.
