CQC survey to examine providers’ experience of sharing information for virtual inspections


The Care Quality Care Commission (CQC) is calling on adult social care providers to share their experience of sharing information digitally during the pandemic.

The CQC has made increased use of different technology to support its off-site inspection and monitoring activities over the last year.

For example, it has made increased use of video calls to engage with staff and managers who work in services.

This has allowed providers of adult social care services to share information, whilst reducing the time CQC Inspectors spend on-site, to minimise risks relating to COVID-19 transmission.

The CQC would like to understand the experiences of adult social care providers in sharing information digitally when inspectors have requested records.
