Frequently asked questions about CQC training

Who is CQC training for?

CQC training is beneficial to any health or care organisation that has mandatory training requirements to fulfill or want to ensure their staff are well-equipped to provide top quality care to patients and service users.

Since the introduction of the new single assessment framework, the CQC continuously reviews information gathered and received about services, which can trigger an inspection at any time.

To maintain or improve your rating, it is important your organisation provides the right training to fill gaps in knowledge and meet the standards expected by the CQC.

Can you provide in-person CQC training courses?

Yes, our consultants can deliver tailored training courses on-site. We understand that every service provider has different training needs when it comes to preparing for their next CQC assessment. Our consultants can help you to stay on track for the best rating possible.

Do you offer online CQC training courses?

Yes, we can also provide CQC training courses online via 1-1 training sessions, group webinars and digital resources for asynchronous learning and development. To find out more, book a call with our consultant to explore training opportunities.

We also offer regular free webinars on a wide range of CQC topics. While they cannot address specific training needs you may have, they can give you helpful insights on the CQC.

Success stories from our clients

“Thornbury Nursing Consultancy … offered valuable experience for us to undertake a comprehensive and helpful ‘practice run’ to test our processes and provide support for teams.

The whole process was simple, clear and well-considered. The report has given us a greater awareness of how our service may be perceived in a regulatory inspection and the opportunity to work on areas of focus in time for the real thing.”

Director of Quality Governance, Oakhaven Hospice

“Thornbury Nursing helped us identify areas of our service that need shaping, which will have a positive impact on future care delivery.

The consultants who were involved were knowledgeable and approachable and made staff, clients and patients feel at ease with the process of the audit.”
