Mastering Preparation for the NEW CQC Single Assessment Framework

What is the New CQC Single Assessment Framework?


The CQC intends to change how they assess health and social care services across England.  They will transition to a new Single Assessment Framework which is expected to enter into force before the end of 2023.  According to the CQC the new framework will assess providers, local authorities and integrated care systems with a consistent set of key themes from registration through to ongoing assessment.


At a glance:

  • The CQC aims to assess services on an ongoing basis
  • The regulations will remain the same 
  • The 5 Key Questions and the Ratings scale will remain the same
  • The Key Lines Of Enquiries(KLOEs) will be replaced by Quality Statements, made up of ”WE” Statements and ”I” Statements
  • Evidence will be collected under the Quality Statements using using 6 new Evidence Categories:

  1. people’s experiences
  2. feedback from staff and leaders
  3. observations of care
  4. feedback from partners
  5. Processes
  6. outcomes of care

Are you prepared for the fundamental changes and their likely impact?
