There are 3 keys areas of work associated with Quality Review Visits (QRVs) - 

1. Self Assessment

The Self Assessment is an opportunity for each clinical team to demonstrate and reflect on areas of good practice and to highlight areas for improvement.

Team leaders have 3 months to complete the quarterly Self Assessment on Audit Management and Tracking (AMaT).

2. QRVs

QRVs are internal ‘mini-inspections’ that take place in each of the clinical services we provide. 

Each service will usually have at least one QRV each year. More frequent QRV’s may take place if it’s felt that the service needs further support.

QRV tip of the month: Don’t forget, the QRV is a supportive process to benchmark and to celebrate good practice, as well as identifying areas for improvement. We want to support you to be CQC ready and to have oversight of where your team fits in with your service line and overall division.

3. Accreditation

Accreditation is an opportunity for services to demonstrate that they have maintained an outstanding level of service, above and beyond the CQC's regulatory requirements.  Only services consistently achieving overall QRV ratings of Good and Good Plus will be considered for accreditation.
