It is for local providers and commissioners to develop plans for delivering more seven day services in hospitals, whilst maintaining standards of care on weekdays. The Care Quality Commission will continue to monitor, inspect and regulate hospitals to make sure they meet fundamental standards of quality and safety on all seven days of the week.
