Webinars to help practices to maintain their CQC rating

The GP Excellence programme is running a series of webinars throughout February and March 2022 which has been designed specifically to help practices across Greater Manchester to maintain their CQC rating. 

The CQC halted their routine inspections for a 3 week period at the end of 2021 to allow practices to focus on delivering the Covid Booster Programme. It is expected that inspection schedules will be being planned once again from February 2022. 

The course content has been developed in collaboration with the RCGP and will cover all five KLOEs; Safe, Effective, Responsive, Caring and Well-led, with an additional section covering Access. We will also be discussing emerging themes – areas that we think the CQC will be looking for on their next round of inspections.

We understand the pressure everyone is under at the moment so we’ve designed it to fit into a 3 hour session that will be delivered remotely. Sessions will be interactive and will have time allocated for Q&A with multiple facilitators available to answer any questions you have.

Webinars will be delivered on a locality basis and practices are able to decide who from their organisation they would like to attend, it doesn’t have to be a GP or Practice Manager.

Below is a schedule of training dates and you can book your place by following the link to the Eventbrite booking form.

We are initially allocating one place per practice but depending upon uptake we may be able to extend this to ensure we maximise the number of people attending each session.

The RCGP have advised that if you have any specific queries you wish to be covered these can be placed in the chat at the start of the session.
