Elevating Quality of Care:

The CQC’s new strategy places a significant emphasis on improving the quality of care provided by healthcare services. MNS Consul understands that small care companies must be prepared to meet and exceed these elevated standards. Our team of experts works closely with you to assess your current practices and implement strategic improvements to ensure your services align with the CQC requirements for domiciliary care.

Harnessing Technology:

Incorporating technology into care provision is an integral aspect of the new CQC strategy. Small care companies may face challenges in adopting and implementing these technological advancements. As such, guidance on selecting and integrating the right technology solutions that enhance the quality and efficiency of your services should be looked at.

Strengthening Partnerships:

Collaboration with other healthcare providers and stakeholders is a key element of the CQC’s new approach to understanding the importance of building and maintaining strong partnerships within the healthcare community. Care providers should aim to identify potential care partners, establish effective communication channels, and foster mutually beneficial relationships to enhance the overall quality of care.

Ensuring Safety and Well-being:

Safety and patient wellbeing are at the forefront of the CQC. Small care companies must demonstrate a commitment to creating a safe and nurturing environment for their clients byimplementing robust policies and procedures to guarantee compliance with safety regulations and promote the wellbeing of those under their care.

Embracing a Learning Culture:

Continuous learning and development are crucial components of the new CQC strategy. Small care companies must invest in the ongoing training and professional growth of their staff. This can be done by designing streamlined yet comprehensive training programmes and career development plans that empower their team with the skills and knowledge needed to provide top-notch care.

The New Single Assessment Framework

At the heart of the new strategy lies the implementation of a single assessment framework. This framework replaces the need for multiple assessments with a more straightforward and unified approach. 

While the fundamental quality statements centred around safety, effectiveness, responsiveness, leadership, and care remain unchanged, Key Lines of Enquiries (KLOEs) are making way for new quality statements that all stakeholders – providers, commissioners, and system leaders – must uphold.

Aligned with a focus on individuals, the CQC has introduced six additional evidence categories. These encompass people’s experiences, feedback from both staff and leaders, direct observations of care, input from partners, processes, and the ultimate outcomes of care. This comprehensive approach offers a holistic perspective on care quality, aiding organisations in pinpointing areas that may require refinement and enhancement.
