CQC Public events

Dear colleagues,

Following the publication of the CQC strategy at the end of this month, I am writing to let you know about three external stakeholder engagement events that we‘ll be hosting in June and July:

•                     27 June – Leeds
•                     12 July – London
•                     14 July – Birmingham

We will use these events to tell our stakeholders about our new strategy and the expected impact for those who provide and use health and social care services. We’ll also be asking for their feedback on a number of areas of our work, including:

•                     Our role in encouraging improvement in care quality
•                     Improving registration
•                     CQC guidance and information for providers
•                     How we can better gather the views and experiences of people who use services to help target inspection activity

You can register for these events here: http://www.cqcstrategy-summerevents.glasgows.co.uk/

These events are for those working in organisations that represent people who use health and social care services, we are separately inviting provider organisations. Attendance at these events is voluntary, this means there is generally no payment or expenses offered. However, we will consider expense claims on a case-by-case basis in order to support people in exceptional circumstances. All expense claims need to be agreed and booked in advance by CQC. Please get in touch with cqcstrategy@glasgows.co.uk  to discuss your request.

We have received a positive response and high level of interest in these events so far. Please still register for the event of your choice even if you are directed to the waiting list. More places will be released soon.

The events are being delivered by an events management company called Glasgows and stakeholders will be directed to sign up via a dedicated website, or email queries to cqcstrategy@glasgows.co.uk or telephone the dedicated events line on 01772 767731. Please email cqcstrategy@glasgows.co.uk if you have any access requirements.
