Caring about CQC Compliance
Need help with CQC Compliance? Meeting sector standards and regulations ultimately means safe, high-quality care. While the responsibility truly falls with teams and how they perform their jobs as well as the leadership, the actual ‘paperwork’ of compliance generally falls to one person. That’s a lot of pressure on somebody’s shoulders.
With DKJ Support Services in your corner, our expertise can help you tackle two of the key areas of health and social care compliance; Traditional Compliance and Health Inequalities.
Traditional CQC Compliance
We can help your organisation with CQC Compliance by undertaking mock CQC audits, ‘deep dive’ into KLOEs, health and safety audits and mandatory training.
We also support health and social care organisations to become CQC registered which we know can be a lengthy, difficult process.
Other things we often get asked to help with include; Compliance Audit, Interim Management Support, Organisational Review and Implementation as well as Policies and Procedures.
Equality, Diversity & Inclusion
DKJ have extensive experience in this area within the public and private sector. We can help you with:
- Compliance with the Public-Sector Equality Duty including analysing, implementing and embedding equalities legislation and policy within public sector environments.
- Development, implementation and analysis of Equality Impact Assessments/Equality Analysis which has been recognised as national best practice and was presented by our directors at a recent Westminster Briefing session.
- Development, review and refresh of policies, strategies and statutory equality objectives
- Development and delivery of equality and diversity based training, learning and development.
Understanding the different health needs within local populations and how that impacts health services, has never been more important.
With a rise in long term conditions like dementia, tougher access to care for certain groups such as BAME women and wider determinants of health like housing and education affecting access to care, understanding local health inequalities is vital for better health and social care.
We initially needed a CQC audit for a GP Practice which we had taken on under an APMS contract and contacted DKJ Support Services to deliver this piece of work I late 2019. Following the development of the CQC action plan, we engaged the services of Kiran Johnson to support us with all aspects of practice management including further CQC registration activities, finance, HR and business services for a further 12 months. We have been pleased with the level of support provided by DKJ Support Services and professionality, knowledge and expertise provided by Kiran Johnson in her role as an interim Practice Manager
