CQC support

A variety of ways in which we can support you


CQC Support and Assistance


At Limeskills we realise that every business is different, that is why we do not have a “one size fits all” approach when you may need our help. To ensure we can provide the appropriate level of assistance we have designed a variety of options that can be tailored to suit your requirements.

The different areas are outlined below but we can add on whatever is needed. We are here to help you, not us!

To get the ball rolling simply complete the contact form below. We will then arrange a free, 2 hour visit to discuss your needs and to see if you want to move forward.

Absolutely no “hard sell” if you do not feel comfortable working with us that is completely fine.

You really do have nothing to lose!

Independent Audit

We offer an independent audit againest the 5 CQC questions which will provide an indication of care practice compliance. This could be a one off or annual visist which could be:

Paper based

Manager interview

Care practice observation

Care plan review 

We can evaluate how processes and practices demonstrate compliance. Feedback can be one to one, a group presentation or written report.

Care Plan Review

 We look into care plan writing, completing and reviewing  paper and online to ensure they are the best they can be. They are evaluated on content compliance, recording and completion. We will highlight both good practice and areas for improvement with practical solutions if necessary.

Dementia Audit

Do you meet the personal and individual needs of people with Dementia in your care setting? Areas that we can assist with to help you demonstrate  good practice could include:

  • Individualised personal care
  • “Life stories” within care planning
  • Best use of activity resources
  • Environmental audit -e.g. use of colours and lighting
Through the Eyes of the Inspector

We help you demystify the CQC lines of inquiry concerning:

  • Health and Safety – Fire, Risk Assessments
  • The Social Care Act 2014 and relevant legislation including Moving and Handling
  • Responsive services
  • Leadership

This is best done with your senior colleagues, directors and/or trustees.
