The Care Quality Commission's (CQC) new Single Assessment Framework represents a significant shift in how healthcare services are evaluated. This one-day conference equips you with the knowledge and strategies to navigate the changes and ensure a successful inspection.

“Good leadership has a significant impact on staff morale and patient experiences of care. Our guidance on how we will assess the well-led key question aims to support NHS trusts to understand what good leadership looks like. Good leadership enables better care for patients, and a more sustainable health and care service.”

Care Quality Commission April 2024

“We are now using our new approach to regulation across England.

Care Quality Commission May 2024

“Our new assessment approach will be more flexible and proportionate, and will be the driving force behind giving an up-to-date view of quality.
