  • They will focus more on the information they hold about local area when assessing quality
  • They will be more proactive when collecting, sharing and using data they hold about services
  • They will use the data and information to identify risks and the need for action
  • There will be less regular on-site inspections, and when they do take place, they will focus on speaking to people and observing practice
  • Ratings will be more flexible and responsive, and will be changed when evidence indicates it is necessary
  • Reports will be shorter, easier to read and targeted to the audience
  • There will be a focus on the environmental impact of the service
  • There will be a focus on safety and how services have learnt from concerns
  • Equality, diversity, human rights and the culture of services will be central to understanding the quality of the service
