The Regulations 1st April 2015
On 1 April 2015 new regulations came into force regarding health and social care in England. These regulations form the basis of the Care Quality Commission (CQC) inspection regime.
Purpose of the Changes
- To introduce fundamental standards
- To make regulations more effective and improve enforcement against them
- To be outcome focused
- To reduce the burden on business.
W & P took the decision to track these changes from their earliest stage in order to understand, assimilate and interpret all of the legislative and regulatory requirements arising from the new regulations.
The legislation needs to be understood so that providers can develop their processes and systems to meeting the regulations It is important to understand that these changes are ongoing through 2016‒2017 and beyond.
Specific Guidance such as the Code of Practice for Health and Adult Social Care on the Prevention and Control of Infections and Related Guidance which has been issued by the Department of Health in relation to Regulation 12 Safe Care and Treatment, is included where relevant in all our business support services and products.
