CQC Compliance training course

Preparing for a new inspection

Thursday 6 November, London

Once more it’s all change at CQC 

This autumn there will be a new approach focusing on the ‘five questions’. Also, for the first time, there will be a dedicated approach to substance misuse services. This course will help you adapt to the many different features of a CQC inspection. 

What changes are you required to make?

  • Complete a ‘Provider Information Return’ prior to your site visit
  • Understand the new ‘Fundamental Standards’ being introduced in October 2014
  • Answer the ‘five questions’ – is my service safe, effective, responsive, caring and well-led?
  • Follow ‘Key Lines of Enquiry’ for all the five questions
  • Ratings – Preparing evidence to demonstrate that you have a ‘Good’ or ‘Outstanding’ service.

David Finney has been specialising in the regulation of the substance misuse sector as an independant consultant since 2009. Previousley he was the national policy lead on substance misuse services with CSCI.
