CSCI: ‘inspection should be well-planned’


Posted on February 1st, by editor in Caring Times. No Comments

A consultation paper on local services inspection produced by the Office of the Deputy prime Minister (ODPM) has drawn a response from the Commission for Social Care Inspection (CSCI) which says the critical focus of any future local services inspection should be on people’s experience of services. Responding to “Inspection Reform: The Future of Local Services Inspection”, the CSCI said future inspection regimes need to be flexible enough to deal with a variety of policies, services and delivery models. For example, as local area agreements develop, the CSCI says no one inspectorate can work in isolation from the others. “Inspection activity should be well planned and co-ordinated, and therefore not unreasonably burdensome on those being inspected,” said the CSCI response. “CSCI agrees with the exclusion of children’s and adults’ services from the inspectorate’s remit, because these require specialist expertise, as in CSCI and Ofsted” # The consultation paper is available on the ODPM website: <http://www. odp
