Councils Judged Good


Four of the five authorities tested – Birmingham, Lincolnshire, North Lincolnshire and Suffolk – received a good rating, the second highest grade below outstanding, following assessments carried out over the summer and autumn.


Nottingham council was rated as requires improvement, the second lowest of the four grades, though the CQC said the ratings for the five authorities were indicative, due to the pilot status of the assessments.


The reports mark the regulator’s first published assessments of local authority adults’ services performance since 2010, when the previous ratings system was scrapped by the coalition government.
