She discusses The Health and Social Care Act 2008 (Regulated Activities) Regulations 2014 and how the regulations that deal with the Fundamental Standards are straight forward to follow.

“You may find lots of quick wins that will give you a warm fuzzy glow amongst all the doom and gloom of Covid,” said Doyle.

Among the key regs to read are:

  • Person Centred Care (9)
    • Dignity and Respect (10)
    • Need for Consent (11)
    • Safe Care and treatment (12)
    • Safeguarding (13)
    • Meeting nutritional and hydration needs (14)
    • Premises and equipment (15)
    • Complaints (16)
    • Good governance (17)
    • Staffing (18)
    • Fit and proper persons employed (19)
    • Duty of Candour (20)
    • Display of performance assessments (20A)

“If you’re going to start anywhere, start with Person Centred-Care (PCC). The people you support, their families and the CQC will love you for it,” said Doyle.  “Focussing on PCC can help change the whole culture of an organisation and give somewhere a new feel and lease of life.”
