CQC preparation

If you would like support in preparing for your next inspection, why not attend our CQC preparation workshop?

This highly interactive half-day workshop provides an insight into how the CQC monitors, inspects and regulates NHS GP practices. This course will help you to prepare your own practice and reflect and learn from the experiences of others.

Learning outcomes

  • Learn and share experiences of practice inspections 
  • Understand how CQC monitor, GP practices including CQC Insight and annual provider information collection
  • What to expect from comprehensive and focused inspections – how to be ready
  • Understand changes to Key Lines of Enquiry (KLOE) and application to general practice
  • Action plan.

To put this learning into practice our team of advisers can work with you back at your practice to develop your action plan and support you and your team as critical friends, to understand what to expect from the inspection.

Forthcoming courses

Courses will be announced once confirmed.


We already have an excellent track record in supporting practices in difficulty through the provision of the National Peer Support Service commissioned by the Department of Health and NHS England from 2014-2017 to support practices that entered special measures. 87% of practices that received RCGP support improved their CQC rating and 80% exited special measures.

The RCGP continues to offer support to practices placed in special measures. In addition, our new consultancy and support programme offers tailored advice and support to any practice that feels they would benefit from our services. The services being provided include a focus on strengthening leadership, enhancing practice communication internally and externally, workforce and capacity issues, finances, premises and supporting collaborative working.

Working with existing practice resources is a key component of the support and is vital in order that changes become embedded and sustainable.
