Mock CQC Inspections

Our audit mock CQC inspections will be conducted in a fashion similar to a CQC inspection, which are mapped to Key Lines of Enquiry, (KLOE’s).  

We will carry out a thorough audit of your service to check if the service is safe, effective, caring, responsible and well led.  

The inspection is carried out by two experienced mock inspectors including a medical doctor with vast experience and qualifications carrying out such inspections across the country.  

The inspection will last between six to seven hours and we can do this Monday to Saturday.  

Our aim is to highlight issues and concerns, giving you valuable time to address any that become apparant. 

How does this work?

The inspection will involve gathering evidence from a number of sources:  

  • Observing staff and service users
  • Speaking to staff
  • Speaking to service users, family members and carers
  • Looking at documentation
  • Medication audit involves MAR chart checks, stock in and out charts checks, physical stocks checks, CDs checks, , Warfarin checks etc
