I've been asked to complete a PIR, does this mean another inspection? | QCS

I am a registered manager and my care home was inspected last year, April 2016, and rated good. I wasn’t then asked to complete a PIR. However, it’s now March 2017 and I received the PIR to complete, does this mean another inspection?

Dear P,


Thank you for your question.


I believe that Providers will be expected to update their Provider Information Return (PIR) each year.


This is important information that CQC holds about your service and so it is of course essential that the information is kept up to date.


There is a useful briefing paper on CQC’s website about frequently asked questions.




Best wishes.
