The CQC is running a series of online focus groups with care providers to support their work in understanding what good interactions between providers and inspectors look like.
Focus groups have been held with inspectors to explore their views and experiences, and now the CQC wants to better understand provider views and look at the impact of good interactions on the quality of care as part of its work with Manchester University Business School.
The CQC hopes the focus groups will provide an opportunity to explore some of the good practices in provider and inspector relationships and what the impacts of these might be.
It also plans to discuss some of the practicalities about how such good practices might be adopted by inspectors.
Providers who wish to attend the focus group on May 3 should contact firstname.lastname@example.org
