Skills for Care has created a range of tools, resources and seminars to assist providers with the Care Quality Commission’s new Single Assessment Framework.

Tools and guidance include a GO Online: Inspection toolkit and GO Guide: Single Assessment Framework Edition. More from: Supporting you with the new CQC Single Assessment Framework, 7 May 2024.

In addition, there is a series of three seminars to help providers understand what’s needed to meet or exceed CQC expectations shaped around the CQC Single Assessment Framework.

The topics are: Being prepared for CQC inspection - understand the basics, Delivering outstanding care - strive to be the best, and Improving your CQC rating - recover your rating. Each seminar costs £120 +VAT per person and a 10% discount is available for ASC-WDS account holders. 

Skills for Care has also published two blogs on the new approach, which share initial feedback from some of the first assessments and set out what providers can do to prepare.  See: CQC assessment: first impressions and tools to help and First impressions of the Single Assessment Framework.

Update 10 May: The Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) has commissioned a review that will focus on the effectiveness of CQC's new assessment methodology and how we apply it. DHSC has appointed Dr Penny Dash to lead the review.  More information.
