Skills for Care in partnership with The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE), the Social Care Institute for Excellence (SCIE) and The Outstanding Society has produced a ‘Good and Outstanding (GO)’ online toolkit to support adult social care services to prepare for Care Quality Commission (CQC) inspections.
As the CQC will be introducing its Single Assessment Framework later this year, Skills for Care has produced two GO toolkits, one which covers the current CQC Assessment Framework shaped around the Key Lines of Enquiry (KLOEs) which can be used if providers anticipate being inspected under the current regime. The other toolkit covers the forthcoming CQC Single Assessment Framework and the CQC’s new Quality Statements, for providers to use if they want to prepare CQC’s new style of monitoring and inspection.
The toolkits support providers to understand what the CQC expects of provider in the five domains (Safe, Effective, Caring, Responsive and Well-Led) and what Good and Outstanding care looks like. The toolkits include introductory films to help you to brief your teams on inspection changes, associated recommendations, practical examples and resources.
