Tony Carlin, our Head of Compliance and Training, is one of the UK’s leading CQC trainers and experts, and has delivered hundreds of sessions around healthcare regulatory compliance.

CQC Audits and Mock Inspections are conducted to assess a provider’s compliance with CQC standards. We offer auditing services to help providers identify areas of improvement and meet regulatory requirements. These audits are conducted primarily by former CQC inspectors, who can provide not only feedback, but recommendations for improvement.

Our On-Site Compliance Support services help providers navigate compliance challenges and implement necessary changes on-site to meet CQC regulations effectively. This support can be varied and we ensure that we tailor our support to meet your exact requirements.

Our CQC Crisis Support can be engaged in a variety of scenarios, whether you have received CQC Enforcement Action or a CQC Notice, if you’ve received a ‘Requires Improvement’ or ‘Inadequate’ at a recent inspection, of if your Registered Manager has left your organisation and has underperformed.

We organise CQC Conferences to provide insights, updates, and best practices in healthcare compliance to help providers stay informed and improve their services. We engage speakers from across the sector to deliver important updates to our audience, as well as ensuring we are providing practical CQC training and advice to our delegates.

Fixed Fee HR is a service that provides predictable HR costs, allowing providers to budget effectively while receiving essential HR support. We understand the challenges healthcare providers face when it comes to managing their workforce while complying with employment laws and HR best practices. Employee issues can place significant strain on management time and resources, and the consequences of non-compliance can be daunting. That’s why we offer a comprehensive fixed-fee Employment Law & HR support service, tailored specifically for CQC-regulated healthcare providers.

Special Measures Support assists providers in addressing critical issues identified by the CQC, guiding them toward improvement. If you are a healthcare provider, receiving a ‘Special Measures’ designation from the Care Quality Commission (CQC) is a critical juncture that demands immediate, comprehensive, and proactive action. It signifies that a healthcare provider has fallen below the threshold of acceptable quality, and the consequences of inaction can be severe. At HLTH Group, we understand the gravity of this situation and are here to provide specialised support tailored to the unique challenges faced by healthcare providers in ‘Special Measures’.

We are the UK’s leading provider of healthcare compliance solutions, offering a comprehensive suite of services and a clinically led team to ensure your success in meeting regulatory requirements and addressing healthcare challenges.
