The thought of an inspection can cause anxiety even for the most experienced of teams, so why wait until a formal inspection to find out how you are performing? Be proactive; let Carewithal carry out a full regulatory inspection which will highlight areas for improvement so you can prepare yourself for a good rating.
Find out in advance of a formal inspection how your care service is performing. This allows you to put together an improvement strategy, making it more likely that you will achieve good or outstanding ratings when your next regulatory inspection is conducted.
A mock inspection will also prepare your team for the type of questions they will be asked and uncover any training requirements. We don’t go into exams, tests or interviews without understanding the expectation, so why go into an inspection unprepared? An external perspective can be invaluable.
What to expect
An experienced care consultant will conduct a full regulatory inspection carried out in line with the format employed by your local regulatory body. There are five key lines of enquiry; is your service safe, caring, effective, responsive and well-led?
Once the inspection has been carried out, you will receive a full report of the findings as well as suggestions for improvement.
We can also assist with creating an actionable improvement strategy, training your teams, implementing more effective policies and procedures, and supporting you during an upcoming inspection.
At Carewithal, our purpose is to help more care services across the UK to achieve outstanding levels of care.
We believe that our elderly and most vulnerable deserve to be treated with compassion, dignity and respect. They deserve quality care, and our goal is to help you deliver that.
Our care consultants have extensive experience and vast amounts of industry knowledge as well as a genuine passion for what they do.
Whether you require a one-off mock inspection, quarterly reviews, monthly support or creation and implementation of a full improvement strategy, we can help.
Samantha worked with me on a training project to support social care managers and senior staff in their preparation for inspections – whether by the regulator or other inspecting bodies. Samantha’s knowledge and confident delivery of key information was top quality. Her style of delivery means that she is engaging and informative.
