CQC Seeks Feedback From Providers On Adult Social Care PIR Form

CQC-logoThe Care `Quality Commission (CQC) is reviewing the content of its adult social care Provider Information Return (PIR) and is seeking feedback from providers.

This is to ensure the adult social care PIR is asking the right questions in a way that can maximise support for providers as well as inspection scheduling and planning.

The adult social care PIR has not been altered since February 2015, however suggestions have been continually monitored and a review of the PIR evaluation forms has taken place.

If you have any further suggestions to contribute, please email your ideas to ASCPIRContentReview@cqc.org.uk. The CQC is looking for feedback about positive aspects of the form, as well as any concerns you’ve identified.

They would value feedback on (but not limited to):

Positive outcomes from completing the PIR

Examples of improvement as a result of the form – for example, in quality assurance or record management

Issues identified with current PIR content

Specific examples of unclear PIR content or a duplicate request for information from other professional bodies

PIR questions which do not reflect the needs of your specific service type, e.g. Shared ives

Any comments on the available PIR guidance

Feedback on the support received for any PIR-related queries

Please ensure that any examples you share with us do not contain confidential personal information.

Email at ASCPIRContentReview@cqc.org.uk. The deadline for all responses is Wednesday 31 August 2016. The CQC will be unable to use any feedback sent to this mailbox after this date as it will be closed.
