This conference aims through national updates and the experiences of NHS Trusts and Independent providers who have been through inspection, to provide a practical guide to preparing for and learning from the new Care Quality Commission inspections in Independent Healthcare.
On the 9th September 2014 Professor Sir Mike Richards, Chief Inspector of Hospitals at the Care Quality Commission announced the first inspections for the independent Sector which will begin in October 2014. The Care Quality Commission stated that they would expect to receive equivalent performance information from providers to what is received from NHS hospitals.
Prof Sir Mike Richards said “We need to hold the independent sector to the same standard as the NHS. As we have seen in the NHS, these new-style inspections will allow us to get under the skin of the organisation to give us a much more detailed picture of independent hospital care in England than ever before. We are significantly increasing public access to information on independent health care, which is good news for people who use services, as it will help people to make informed decisions about their care.”
