Independent Quality Assurance & Regulatory Compliance Testing
External quality assurance testing of care services can provide a vital independent assessment of the quality of care for an operator and the management team especially avoiding complacency and ensuring good governance, something increasingly important in our highly regulated sector.
Careport can carry out complete audits of care homes testing all essential Regulations relevant to CQC, CSSIW and the Scottish Care Inspectorate.
For example, our CQC regulated compliance testing is fully KLOE (Key Lines of Enquiry) based, measuring whether a service is Safe, Effective, Caring, Responsive and Well-Led.
We also provide independent Provider Reporting services to ensure your management team is advised of risks that require their attention and what actions they should take.
Our Quality Assurance and Compliance Testing tools can provide you with an ongoing or one-off test of quality including using the results and our written findings to illustrate improvements in a service. Such evidence is increasingly important to provide to regulators on inspection.
They can also be used to provide a basis for us to advise you on how best to address issues and all of our written findings are accompanied by an Action Plan to implement.
Our highly experienced teams provide a wide range of expertise which will supplement your existing management team on an independent advisory basis.
Alternatively, investors use our quality assurance and regulatory compliance testing services to obtain independent views of their operator or management company and how they are performing across all of their responsibilities.
Finally, for the more severe cases where registration is under threat, we can work with your legal advisors (or recommend legal advisors to work with) to ensure a robust compliance testing regime and improvement programme is implemented and representations are made to protect registration using the improvement programme as essential evidence.
