CQC preparation

We can work with you to ensure your practice is fully prepared for CQC inspection, providing practical tools and templates and develop an action plan to support you in getting the best result.

Our advisers have a wealth of experience in working with GP practices to help make your inspection go smoothly. Our advisers work with you to develop action plans and support you as critical friends.

Our team can help you:

  • understand how the inspections are conducted
  • discover practical tools, checklists and documentation templates to help you prepare everything you need for your inspection
  • learn what policies and systems you can implement to ensure you get an outstanding rating
  • prepare your staff for CQC inspections
  • understand the continued impact and scope GDPR will have on your practice as well as its effect on CQC inspections.


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.
