New insight and advice to help you improve your CQC rating

The latest edition of Skills for Care's 'Good and outstanding care' guide can help you improve your service and deliver good and outstanding care. It has new and updated tips from across the sector that reflect the changes to CQC inspections in November 2017.

Skills for Care asked good and outstanding care providers what they do to achieve this rating, which they are sharing in their updated ‘Good and outstanding care guide’.

This latest edition includes new tips and practical examples from across the sector, that reflect the changes to CQC inspections introduced in November 2017.   

If you work for a CQC regulated, adult social care provider, the guide can help you improve and prepare for your inspection. If you’re already rated good or outstanding, it will help you maintain or improve your rating. If you’re service requires improvement, it will help you avoid some of the common mistakes and take a proactive approach to improving standards.

Whilst the majority of adult social care providers are already achieving good and outstanding ratings, there’s lots of learning that we can share to help other employers improve their CQC rating and ultimately, their care and support.

Some of the things you can do are simple and effective, whilst others are innovative and transformational – and they can make a real difference to not only to the quality of care and support, but to your staff motivation and confidence too.

If  you’re looking for ways to improve your service and ensure you deliver good and outstanding care, download the free online edition. You can also buy a printed copy of the extended workbook edition, with activities to help you implement change in your organisation.
