Mock Inspection Toolkit – Introduction

Mock Inspection Toolkit Mock Inspection Toolkit Region: | Reference: MIG01

This policy has been fully updated and redeveloped to provide an overview of the revised Mock Inspection process for GPs. It fully supports the CQC inspection process and details how internal audit and assessment will prepare a Practice for a CQC site visit. It outlines how the Mock Inspection process supports quality assurance and drives improvement. Depending on the Practice’s level of confidence in the Mock Inspections, and how effectively they have been carried out, findings, action plans, improvements and monitoring of changes made (including stakeholder feedback) could be shared with the CQC Inspection Team to demonstrate how quality assurance is embedded in all activities.
