This guide provides insight into how regulated adult social care providers can meet or exceed Care Quality Commission (CQC) expectations.  

With content shaped around the CQC Single Assessment Framework, the GO Guide takes a closer look at each of the 34 Quality Statements that will be scored as part of the new assessment process. 

Using practical checklists and recommendations, the guide helps regulated providers to reflect on what you currently do and whether you can effectively evidence this to the CQC. 

Across 300-pages of insight and advice, the guide enables you and your teams to recognise and prepare to showcase to the CQC what you do well and identify where there might be gaps that could impact your rating. 

Co-produced in partnership with The Outstanding Society, the guide aims to help you build confidence in being ready for CQC assessment and empower your managers, staff team, people, and wider connections are ready to celebrate what you do. 

In addition to the print edition, those purchasing the guide will also receive access to online versions of both the guide and the multiple checklists to incorporate into your wider CQC assessment quality assurance processes. 

Please note the new guide replaces our earlier print edition, originally produced in 2018, which was focused around the new defunct CQC Key lines of enquiry.
