Have the Care Inspectorate changed the way they inspect Care at home? | QCS

Hi Senga

I have been told the Care Inspectorate have changed the way they inspect Care at Home, is that correct? I am expecting an inspection soon and I am now worried that they will inspect me under the new regime, and I don’t know about it. Can you clarify for me, please?

Hello Jessie

Firstly, please don’t worry about it, no matter the framework the regulator uses, they will be looking at the same issues and outcomes for the service users, therefore continue to do what you do and please don’t worry.

They have issued a new framework in draft form for consultation, it is similar to the new framework they are using in other services. You will find the new framework here, please have a look and share with your staff. Good Luck for your next inspection.
