Mock CQC Inspections

Take the first step to outstanding with a Mock CQC Inspection

Our CQC compliance experts will highlight any concerns before it’s too late.

A Mock CQC Inspection is just that, a thorough inspection of your care organisation which mimics CQC’s Key Lines of Enquiry (KLOE) and inspection methodology.

The aim is to highlight any problems or concerns giving you the time to be proactive and stay in control. Of course, if a CQC inspector was to find them before you then it could have a negative effect on your overall rating – so let’s stay one step ahead!

Just like in a real inspection, our team of CQC compliance experts will carry out a thorough audit of the care service you provide against the Key Lines of Enquiry (KLOE). They’ll be asking those all important question; is the service safe, effective, caring, responsible and well-led.

Once complete, a full report will be made available to you along with an action plan to help pull that area back in to compliance and best practice. Further support is always available, if required.

The duration of your Mock CQC Inspection depends on how large your organisation is. Please contact us for further information.

Mock CQC inspections have made a difference to these care providers…

It was our pleasure to have the CIA ‘Mock Inspection Team’ with us – the two days went extremely well and they both confirmed the areas of improvement we expected, which was reassuring to know that our own identified priorities were accurate.

The insight they were both able to give, and the ideas and suggestions, was extremely useful and the team were left feeling very inspired.”
