CQC launches second annual Invisible Conditions campaign

CQC launches second annual Invisible Conditions campaign

About the #InvisibleConditions campaign

Nearly one in three people in England have a long term condition, and many of these conditions are ‘invisible’ or not easily noticeable to someone else. In our State of Care 2015/2016 report, we found that people with long term conditions were less likely to report feeling involved in their care.

CQC want to educate patients about the standards of care they have a right to expect and to let them know they can feedback to CQC about their care. In order to reach members of the public, we will be launching a multi-channel public engagement campaign on Monday, 14 November.
During the week long campaign, we will spend each day looking at one invisible long term condition:

Monday – Heart disease
Tuesday – Osteoporosis
Wednesday – COPD and other lung conditions
Thursday – Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD)
Friday – Mental health conditions

What We Are Asking From You
We’re asking for a commitment to help encourage more people with long term conditions to feedback about their care experiences. During our launch week, 14 November – 18 November, we’re asking you to support our campaign on your social media channels:
