Using the latest COVID learnings emerging from infection prevention and control specialists, and taking account of the newly developed Care Quality Commission (CQC) inspection methodology, QCS, the National Care Forum (NCF) and Standards Wise International have developed a leading-edge audit tool that supports organisations to assess their own practices, and prepare evidence for audit which not only meets CQC requirements but also conforms to international standards.

The tool is structured around eight questions and prompts that inspectors will use to assess infection prevention and control procedures in all care settings in England from September. It breaks down each of the eight subject areas into easily digestible points, and most importantly, it includes an ‘evidence of good practice’ section.

The Audit Tool is part of the latest partnership between QCS, the NCF and Standards Wise International. To find out more about the partnership, please read the press release here.
