how to be rated 'outstanding'

If you work hard at providing a high quality health or care service, positive feedback is affirming that you’re on the right lines, as well as being recognition of all your efforts. Positive feedback is motivating and encourages you to be the best carer, manager or company owner that you can be. Direct feedback from your customers is essential information that enables you to make a judgement about your own performance.

If feedback from your customers is positive,

you would also want positive recognition from the CQC.  If you believe you are providing a high quality care service, it becomes your job to describe and evidence how you know you are achieving this. The CQC provide lots of helpful material to guide providers  on what a high quality service looks like and  how we can deliver  a service that is high performing in line with the five key lines of enquiry (KLOEs) Safe, Effective, aring, Responsive and Well Led*.
