The Care Quality Commission (CQC) has published Guidance about compliance: summary of regulations, outcomes and judgement framework.
The document is a summary of the guidance that has been produced to help providers of health and adult social care in England comply with the Health and Social Care Act 2008 (Regulated Activities) Regulations 2009 and the Care Quality Commission (Registration) Regulations 2009.
The guidance is in two parts:
Part 1 contains the regulations and the outcomes
that CQC expect people using a service will
experience if the provider complies with the
Part 2 summarises the stages and steps in CQC’s
’judgement framework,’ which they will use to judge
compliance with the regulations.
There are 28 outcomes contained in the guidance and these are grouped into the following six key areas:
●Involvement and information
●Personalised care, treatment and support
●Safeguarding and safety
●Suitability of staffing
●Quality and management
●Suitability of management
