Pre-Inspection Visits

CQC Inspection methodology focuses on compliance with registration and enforcement action will be taken against services that are deemed to be non compliant with registration.

A pre-inspection service undertaken by former CSCI and CQC Regulatory Staff is available to identify areas for action in order to improve the quality of the service provided and deliver positive outcomes for recipients of your service. We will advise you on how to ensure your service is Safe, Caring, Responsive, Effective and Weel led.

Care First Consultancy Midlands staff will visit you and apply current outcome based inspection methodology, referencing the outcome based regulatory framework set out in the Health & Social Care Act, (Regulated Activities) Regulations 2010/2014 provider handbooks.

All relevant documentation including care plans, risk assessments. MAR sheets and recruitment documentation will be scrutinised. Areas requiring attention to improve outcomes for users of services and to meet CQC requirements will be identified and action plans for improvement will be developed with the provider.

Our Pre-Inspection Audits will help ensure services are not only compliant with registration but deliver best practice and positive outcomes for service users.
