CQC Examples of Outstanding Practice Toolkit

Updated on Friday, 17 July 2015, 1139 views

The new online tool  brings together a collection of some of the most innovative and effective examples of outstanding practice that CQC inspectors have found since implementing the new methodology.

The tool intends to provide real-world, illustrative examples of high quality general practice that other providers can refer to. The examples are divided into the five key questions that we ask when making judgements about the quality of a service in our new inspection model, as well as the six patient population groups we pay particular attention to. Under the new approach, we ask if services are safe, effective, caring, responsive to patient need, and if they are well-led. Full report
