Are you part of CQC or do you work in partnership with CQC?

Hi Sheila,

Are you part of CQC or do you work in partnership with CQC, how does the policies and procedures get updated?


Dear Namita,


Thank you for your question.


I do not work for or am associated with the Care Quality Commission (CQC). I am the Care Strategist for Quality Compliance Systems (QCS).


I don't know if you are a customer of QCS and have their policies and procedures but Organisations like QCS continually update their policies and procedures to keep up to date with latest developments and good practice guidance and to make sure that their customers are compliant. They are continually reviewing their policies and procedures and send Weekly Compliance Reminder and Policy Updates to their customers.


This of course is more challenging if you are trying to keep up to date with latest developments on your own.

You would need to be very vigilant and read magazines and websites to be sure that you are keeping up.


The Care Quality Commission website is another source of information.


I hope this is helpful.


With best wishes.
