Auditing and Due Diligence
We are a specialist health and social care barristers chambers with significant experience in dealing with social care regulators including the Care Quality Commission (CQC) and other regulators.
If you are preparing for a CQC inspection but not sure how to improve your service, we can help you with a mock CQC inspection to help identify issues in advance of your formal inspection.
With years of experience in health and social care regulation and law, a mock CQC inspection will help you identify regulation breaches in your service provision. The CQC mock inspections will also identify areas of improvement for you to implement.
Although we can bring an objective perspective on your service, we understand it is your business and you understand the way your business works. We will work with you during our CQC mock inspections to tailor our inspection to meet your individual needs.
The CQC mock inspection will replicate the CQC’s inspection process including interviews with staff and service users.
Our report and feedback following the mock CQC inspection will be comprehensive, giving you clear and practical advice and action plan for areas that require improvement. It will be based on the format of a CQC inspection report covering the five key questions that form the basis of your CQC rating.
In addition to our CQC mock inspections, our extensive experience as health and social care barristers is perfectly placed to assess your regulatory compliance through extensive and comprehensive due diligence work.
Good due diligence will ensure you have taken reasonable steps to comply with your statutory duty of care. It is also a statutory defence for a provider to show that it took all reasonable steps and exercised all due diligence to prevent a breach.
If you are thinking about the sale of purchase of a social care business, our expertise in due diligence work in the sector can give you peace of mind and our expert consultants can assist with managing issues and eliminating risk to your business.
I had a rather complicated case with very serious allegations. After thorough research I was fortunate to find Kings View Chambers. They were honest and upfront in their review of my situation from the outset, giving practical advice as to the best way forward and reasonable and affordable costings.
