Care Improvement Works is a practical resource developed for managers, owners, quality improvement leads and others involved in reviewing practice and delivering the highest standards of care.

Using Care Improvement Works can help you meet the CQC Fundamental Standards and deliver a safe, effective, caring, responsive and well-led service. The resource can help services achieve good and outstanding care.

It includes 150+ products and services mapped to what the CQC inspections look at, including the new and revised area of inspection introduced in November 2017.

To use Care Improvement Works, first select the areas of CQC inspection you wish to review, improve on or learn more about.

For care topics and products you are interested in finding out more about you can choose “Add to my list” and at the end email yourself all the items in your basket in one simple report. The report can then be used for your own future reference and to share with colleagues helping you to implement change and service innovation.

Care Improvement Works is a collaboration between SCIE, NICE and Skills for Care aimed at helping CQC regulated services in England. It is supported by Think Local Act Personal.

SCIE, NICE and Skills for Care also provide additional support and assistance to adult social care providers. Find out more.
