Mock Inspection: Safe

Mock Inspection Toolkit SAFE Region: | Reference: MIGS01

This policy has been converted to the new QCS format and developed to reflect the Care Quality Commission’s inspection framework of the five Key Questions and the latest thinking from the CQC on how it will inspect GP practices. This Mock Inspection Toolkit will assist with understanding Key Question 1 – ‘Is the Service Safe?’ It now incorporates the six KLOEs, HS1, HS2, HS3, HS4, HS5 and HS6. Previously there were five individual mock inspections for this Key Question. This Mock Inspection, therefore, supersedes MIGS02, MIGS03, MIGS04 and MIGS05 which have all been archived. Please also note that The ‘Key Facts for Service Users’ has been omitted from this document as it is designed as an internal self-audit tool.
