The search function on the CQC website is absolutely terrible. I have no idea what is going on in the background.

This page ( shows 4207 results. The most recent (at time of writing) shown is 7 April 2022. However, if you filter by Region to “South East” the most recent becomes 13 April 2022.


Then, head back to the main list again and download the data using the link at the bottom. Gives me 4212 results. That’s five more than shown on the site.

If you do any sort of search it is so fuzzy the results are meaningless. I assume it then sorts by “best match” (but so fuzzy…) and you can’t then sort by anything else.

Just terrible.
