CQC Single Assessment Framework - Update

In my role as chair of the National Dignity Council I attended a CQC Adult Social Care Provider meeting on Wednesday 27th April.

We were given an update on where CQC are with the creation of the Single Assessment Framework which will impact on the inspection of Health/Care Services using the same framework, obviously applied in different settings.

You can read more about this on the CQC website (opens new window), but we were given permission to share the slides below - the person centred quality statements are based on the TLAP I and We statements (opens new window).

There is still a way to go but it does seem that is a real positive step in the right direction.
