Clinical Quality Audits

Providing policies and procedures that ensure quality.

Quality audits designed to help maintain ongoing standards.

Quality audits are typically conducted by the CQC as part of their inspections but Delphi can also assist your service in reviewing the quality given to service users and work in conjunction with you to produce a comprehensive action plan to help improve the quality of service given.

Similar to our mock CQC inspections, these audits focus solely on the quality that providers and can help identify areas that would benefit from improvement.

What are quality audits?

The purpose of a quality audit is to ensure that the care provided meets the required standards of quality and safety, and that the care is delivered in a compassionate, dignified, and respectful manner.

During a quality audit, our task force will review policies and procedures, observe the care being provided, interview staff and residents, and review documentation, such as care plans and medical records. We will then provide a report on our findings and make recommendations for improvements, if necessary.

What we do.

Bespoke policies written in line with the latest CQC requirements.

Having up to date and accurate policies is an essential part of determining your CQC rating. With frequent changes, ensuring your service is fully compliant and has correct policies in place can be quite time consuming. Having produced policies for all aspects of the healthcare sector, Delphi can review your existing policies and make recommendations or even write a bespoke suite of policies for you in line with latest CQC requirements.
The ultimate goal of quality audits and policy reviews is to ensure that the care provided by the service is of the highest quality and meets the needs and expectations of the residents and their families.

Why are quality audits important?

Quality and policy audits play a vital role in maintaining high quality care in the health and social care industry. They allow managers, staff, the people utilising the service, and even regulators know that the policies and procedures in place are operating correctly.

Quality audits can also provide reports and written evidence of your service’s performance and ensure that it remains compliant with the CQC standards of care. These reports can also provide areas of the service that require improvement with clear and actionable insights to help improve the quality of care being provided.

All in all, they provide evidence to the CQC and Local Authorities that your service has a commitment to quality care and compliance with legislation and standards.
