A new partnership has been established to help care providers develop good practice and meet compliance obligations.
Quality Compliance Systems (QCS) is teaming up with the Social Care Institute for Excellence (SCIE) to help providers build on their achievements and drive improvements across the sector.
SCIE’s chief executive, Tony Hunter, said: “We’re keen to support improvement in the quality of adult social care, by offering expert support before and after CQC inspections and by helping providers in their responsibilities under the Care Act. The partnership with QCS will help the sector provide services which improve people’s lives.”
QCS’s managing director, Mat Whittingham, added: “We are really excited to be working in partnership with SCIE. Their world class resources will enhance the support we provide our clients and help us to drive quality and innovation across the sector. We believe that collaboration and the wider sharing of resources is key to the delivery of person-centred, diverse and well-led care.”
Under the partnership SCIE will link its resources with the QCS dashboard for social care providers, monthly blogs will give the latest information, QCS products, policy and procedures will be updated and the SCIE will join the QCS improvement board.
