CQC New Arrangements

Quality Solutions Wessex Ltd. | Care Training | CQC New Arrangements

Last year CQC increased their number of inspectors to enable them to carry out inspections on a yearly basis, instead of the 3 years we have been used to in the past.  They carried out themed inspections and as a result we now have approximately 45 homes across Dorset with embargoes on them, due to “safeguarding” issues, which must be addressed before allowing new residents in.  Training of the carers is high on their agenda as they believe that if the staff are not trained efficiently then they cannot carry out the care to a satisfactory level. Last year their priority was dignity, privacy and choice which included diet and nutrition.
