Our Mission

Our primary mission is to assist healthcare providers in responding proactively to the CQC’s findings and reports, with a specific focus on services that have received a ‘Requires Improvement’ or ‘Inadequate’ rating. We recognize that these situations demand a meticulous and structured approach, and we are here to guide you every step of the way.

Independent Review

The first step on this journey is to conduct a fair and independent review of your service. Our team of experts will review and carefully assess the CQC’s findings, inspect your service, and evaluate compliance with regulations and standards.

Strategic Response

If we identify discrepancies or areas where we disagree with the CQC’s findings, we will work closely with you to develop a strategic response. Our goal is to ensure that your service is accurately represented and that all necessary steps are taken to address any deficiencies.

Collaborative Approach

Throughout the process, we emphasize a collaborative approach. We work closely with your team, respecting your insights and expertise, to create a unified response that reflects the dedication to quality care your service provides.

Challenging the Report

When necessary, we will advocate on your behalf by challenging the CQC’s report. Our experienced team, in collaboration with specialist CQC solicitors, will navigate the intricacies of challenging CQC findings to secure the best possible outcome for your service.
