Bluebird Care and QCS announce specialist compliance package for the Republic of Ireland
Bluebird Care, a specialist in domiciliary care services, has chosen Quality Compliance Systems (QCS), to deliver content, guidance, policies and procedures to all of its home care businesses in the Republic of Ireland.
The partnership comes as the Health Information and Quality Authority (HIQA), which monitors the safety and quality of the healthcare and social care systems, announced that it was seeking extra regulatory powers.
As part of the agreement, QCS, the UK’s leading content provider for the social care sector, has worked closely with Care Quality experts, HIQA and the Irish National Health Service (HSE) to tailor all of its policies and procedures to meet standards in the Republic of Ireland.
The content and compliance package contains a raft of policies and procedures, which have been specifically written for the Republic of Ireland.
Neil Murray, the Director of Quality and Compliance at Bluebird Care, Ireland, said, “We are delighted to be working with QCS in the Republic of Ireland. By working in partnership with QCS to curate specialist and bespoke content for the care sector in the Republic of Ireland, our frontline care workers will be able to call upon an even greater assortment of content and compliance tools going forward.”
Philippa Stevens, QCS’s Head of Partnership and Alliances, added, “We’re exceptionally proud to be involved in this partnership. In the last 18 months, the social care sector has experienced many challenges. One of the central hurdles to providing outstanding care is being able to create a rich culture of compliance, where care professionals always have right tools at the right time. Moving forward, we hope the partnership will enable more care services to have access to those tools as they continually strive to provide outstanding care.”
