Following engagement with providers and inspectors over the last six months, CQC are introducing improvements to their factual accuracy process and guidance. The changes will be introduced from Monday, 8 April 2019.


The key changes to be  aware of:

  • New guidance on the factual accuracy process has been created. It defines more clearly the scope of factual accuracy and outlines how providers should respond.


  • Providers will now access the factual accuracy form on CQC’s website via the Guidance for Providers. The form will not be sent to providers with draft reports.
