A new partnership for QCS and SCIE
15th August 2016
A new partnership announced last week will support providers in building on their achievements and help drive improvement across the sector. Quality Compliance Systems (QCS) has teamed up with improvement agency the Social Care Institute for Excellence (SCIE) to ensure care providers are supported and create real improvement.
It can be a daunting experience for care providers to think about their responsibilities as a care and support provider. Preparing for Care Quality Commission inspections, adhering to the Care Act 2014 as well as the day to day tasks can become overwhelming.
“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 says:
“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.”
New materials will be produced to guide this including developments to the QCS dashboard for subscribers, blogs, webinars and other helpful tools:
- SCIE resources will link with QCS’s dashboard for social care providers
- Monthly blogs will give the latest information
- The organisations will collaborate in updating QCS products, policy and procedures
- SCIE will join the QCS care improvement board.
The aim is to promote and develop good practice in care, whilst meeting compliance obligations, encourage improvement and run care business as efficiently as possible.
