Nadra Ahmed, chairman of the National Care Association, reviews a new easy-to-use pre-inspection guide for care homes that provide a non-nursing service.

Launched at the National Care Association’s most recent conference, Gathering Evidence – The practical, easy to use a pre inspection guide for care home services without nursing has proved a popular guide and a must-have document for busy care providers.

The beauty and elegance of the guide lies in its simplicity. It truly is an easy-to-follow guide that lightens the bureaucratic maze, making the care provider’s life easier.

Priced at £18, Gathering Evidence is a practical, outcome-by-outcome guide to help home owners and managers to understand what the Care Quality Commission outcomes mean and what policies and procedures link to each outcome.

It asks thought-provoking and helpful questions to ensure the best policies, procedures and documents are developed to meet the requirements of all CQC outcomes.

It is short, written in user-friendly language and provides useful examples and information.

If you own or manage a care home without nursing this 30-page booklet will help you to:

● Have the best policies and procedures to demonstrate the quality of the service you operate.

● Prepare comprehensive evidence for your inspection.

● Support your staff to understand the CQC outcomes and their role in the inspection process.
