CQC has made improvements to the Provider Information Return (PIR)
In June this year, the Care Quality Commission (CQC) sent out updates about the improvements they were making to their Provider Information Return (PIR). From 7 August 2019, CQC requested that all providers complete an updated PIR and this will then continue on an annual basis.
Requests for the PIR will be sent during the anniversary month of your first site visit. This will allow CQC to expand how they use information from the PIR to support their continuous monitoring of services and they will also continue to use the PIR as part of any inspections that take place.
CQC will be writing to all providers with details of the updated questions/guidance and a reminder of when your first site visit date was to assist with planning for your PIR.
