Self Assessments help team leaders think about evidence they could provide to support preparation for both QRV’s and future CQC visits. The questions are directly from the QRV report template which is informed by the CQC’s Key Lines Of Enquiries (KLOEs).

* Part One consists of core questions that teams should be able to rate as Good. Each question also includes the definition of the Good Plus rating. Teams are expected to be working towards, or are already able to demonstrate, evidence to achieve the Good Plus rating.

* Part Two consists of questions that have been highlighted from themes extracted from previously completed QRV’s Trust wide. These questions may be more challenging for teams to demonstrate or evidence as Good.  

* Questions that appears to have multiple statements should be answered ‘Yes’ to all components to rate as Good or Good Plus*

There is now one question sets being answered Trust wide, enabling meaningful data to be gathered and analysed to support teams, service lines, divisions and the Trust as a whole to identify areas of good practice and areas where further support is needed.

Team leaders have 3 months to complete the quarterly Self Assessment on Audit Management and Tracking (AMaT) and submit before midnight on the last day of each quarter –

Quarter 1 = 1st April to 30th June

Quarter 2 = 1st July to 30th September

Quarter 3 = 1st October to 31st December

Quarter 4 = 1st January to 31st March
