Care Quality Commission Strategy 2016 to 2021 Consultation

RCoA response to the Care Quality Commission (CQC) consultation:
Shaping the Future – CQC’s strategy 2016 to 2021

The broad aims of this strategy are supportable but the RCoA has concerns about the increasing emphasis on the cost of inspection rather than its accuracy and efficacy. In addition, it seems that the focus of the CQC’s inspections will be swinging from safety to efficiency and this raises considerable concerns.  More use could be made of specialty accreditation processes already in place, such as the RCoA’s Anaesthesia Clinical Services Accreditation (ACSA) scheme.
