This conference focuses on preparing and ensuring readiness for the New CQC Inspection Framework which is due to commence in 2023.

“In November, we will start to use our new assessment framework. This will be rolled out regionally, starting with providers in the South of England. Any assessments from November onwards for providers in the South will be carried out using the new assessment framework. We’ll still schedule assessments by considering the level of risk, so not all providers will need to have an immediate assessment. In other regions, we will continue to use our current assessment framework for now. The new assessment framework will be rolled out to other regions by the end of March 2024, and we will provide further updates as each region moves over to using the new framework.”

“We want the ratings to better reflect the care people are receiving”
