The Care Quality Commission (CQC) is the independent regulator of health and adult social care services in England. They also protect the interests of people whose rights are restricted under the Mental Health Act.
As the regulator of health and adult social care in England, the CQC makes sure that the care that people receive meets essential standards of quality and safety and encourages ongoing improvements by those who provide or commission care. The CQC often inspect properties, the CQC inspections can cause the interruption of services from the building.
We can assist you to ensure your buildings achieve Essential standards of quality and safety demanded by the CQC.
We provide CQC Audits across the health and social care sector, our CQC Audit report focuses purely on the Premises Aspects of the following two outcomes:
Outcome 8: Cleanliness and Infection Control
Outcome 10: Safety and Suitability of Premises
The audits are undertaken as both a visual inspection of the building by a highly experienced auditor and also a sit down interview with relevant practice/building managers and staff to determine the presence of correct statutory procedures.
Our CQC Audit reports the issues in a clear and concise manner, drawing attention to the issues found and providing budget costs to take the next steps towards compliance.
We also have the experience in the individual elements of the inspection, such as Legionella and Fire Risk Assessments to provide qualified advice on current procedures and policies.

- Building Condition Survey – with costed remedial actions
