A Local Commissioner may convey any recommendations or conclusions from this review to government departments or the Care Quality Commission. A Commissioner may also provide good practice advice or guidance to adult social care providers.

350.Section 34S provides that each Local Commissioner must prepare a report on the discharge of their functions for each financial year. The Commission must then prepare an annual report which must be laid before Parliament and which must be published along with the reports from the individual Commissioners.
