The inspection insider

The Caring KLOE is the shortest of all key lines of enquiry, but arguably the one with most impact on the patients and their families/carers. It’s also the one where no practice will ever feel they fall short of 100% compliance. Experience leads those involved in inspections to recognise that a culture of caring is

The inspection insider: Responding to the `responsive` KLOE (Part 6 of 7)

The inspection insider

Practices need to be responsive to patient needs – both individual and collective – something that I’ll focus on in this article. A good question to start with is ‘are your policies designed to be responsive to patients with special needs, especially under Equality legislation?’ The Key Line of Enquiry (KLOE) includes some very direct

The inspection insider

Leadership is defined in many ways. The Oxford Dictionary is little help as it merely says, “The action of leading a group of people or an organisation,” while Forbes defines it as being, “a process of social influence, which maximises the efforts of others, towards the achievement of a goal”. One of the most influential

The inspection insider: KLOEs and the new inspections (Part 1 of 7)

The inspection insider

By now, it’s safe to assume that all practice managers know what a KLOE is. However, when it comes to dealing with the CQC, the real test is whether what you believe it means corresponds with what your CQC Inspection Team believes it is. From experience, the gap between the two can be a significant
