My name is Shelley Watson and I formed Inspection Ready Healthcare Ltd in 2015 with a view to making a significant difference across the healthcare sector with regards to compliance; I wanted to allay the fears amongst staff with the inspection process undertaken by the Care Quality Commission and other regulators. With 20 years of experience within the legal and compliance sector I felt it was time to help staff within healthcare with some of the many challenges they face on a daily basis with the main outcome, which I’m very passionate about is making a difference to the service user.
I started my university education in Medicine then moved to Healthcare Law, since then I have undertaken Masters Degrees in both Healthcare Law and Risk. I am a qualified auditor and have professional membership with the Institute of Internal Auditors. I have very high standards when it comes to compliance; however at the same time provide a sensible approach. I am very driven and love a challenge. My associates all have the same very high standards and no stone goes unturned during our audits. My associates are experts within their own rights and have acquired many skills within the healthcare sector.
Long Business Description: A company that puts the service user at the heart of everything they do. Inspection Ready Healthcare only use associates that are experts within the field of healthcare; being either doctors, nurses or social workers that have vast experience within the NHS, Independent Healthcare or Adult Social Care. All our associates including myself are experts in compliance and are all CQC Inspectors or Specialist Advisers and conduct inspections across the healthcare sector on a regular basis; My Associates work daily within healthcare and therefore understands from a compliance perspective, staff perspective and service user perspective what is required and sometimes how difficult it can be to meet the challenges the healthcare sector face. This in my opinion makes IRH very unique as we support the whole healthcare sector.
IRH provide support in the form of advice, mock CQC inspections, audits, bespoke consultancy projects, interim turnaround assistance which includes one of my associates spending a period of time within the service to address the challenges and put the service back on track. In addition to this we also provide training to staff, including; safeguarding training, manual handling, infection control, registered manger training and preparation for registered manager interviews with the CQC. IRH also work on large projects including supporting the NHS and Independent Healthcare with preparation for inspection. One recent assignment being Aintree University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, which has taken months of preparation including a Trust wide mock inspection, self-assessment, workshops with staff, staff booklet, CQC intranet page that staff can access, regulatory audits and regular training sessions. Following this preparation the Hospital is hoping to retain their rating of ‘Good’. We also offer a monthly subscription that services can sign up to; this offer includes quarterly visits to the service to ensure they are on track in preparation for inspection and ensures continuous quality improvement for service users.
Inspection Ready Healthcare has received accolades from many services for being approachable, humble and having a fantastic work ethic. IRH have developed numerous workable policies and procedures, posters, staff handbooks to utilise and implement within services, these useful resources have been very helpful as a reminder to staff and to ensure they understand the requirements of key regulations.
We offer much more through our website and have supported organisations across the country with turnaround support and preparing for inspection. IRH support organisations/care homes that have been placed in special measures and have received warning notices from the regulator. We can offer speedy solutions for this and often prioritise special measures over existing work.
