There are now two versions of the Good and Oustanding inspection toolkit available.
This covers the current CQC Assessment Framework shaped around the Key lines of enquiry (KLOEs).
The CQC will commence phasing this framework out between November 2023 and March 2024, beginning in the South of England.
Until the CQC rolls out their new Single Assessment Framework in your part of the country, you can use this version of the Inspection toolkit to continue to use this framework until “late 2023” and so if you anticipate you will be inspected before the, this version can help you to prepare.
This covers the forthcoming CQC Single Assessment Framework which the CQC will be rolled out in stages across the country between November 2023 and March 2024.
To ensure your service is prepared to evidence to the CQC how you will meet their new Quality Statements, we recommend reviewing this version to be ready for these inspection changes.
