Care Excellence Standard (CES)

 The Care Quality Commission or CQC have asked a few selected bodies that specialise in care management to develop a Bespoke Standard, designed solely for the Care Sector. As a result the CES or ‘Care Excellence Standard’. Has been developed and is expected to be launched in the spring of 2016.

Providers who attain the CES will demonstrate that their service EXCEEDS the current CQC standards and will act as a Mark of Excellence against your service. CQC are planning to introduce a new ‘ratings’ initiative which will indicate the level and standard of care provided in care homes. CQC have indicated that the implementation of CES, followed by a 3rd party, independent evaluation will assist Care Providers to achieve the highest rating and will make monitoring much simpler for the provider.

The CES will be an accredited ISO Standard and it is expected that third party auditors will need to be certified to this standard in order to carry out audits against the ISO standards. W&P’s auditors will be IRCA (International Register of Certificated Auditors) trained in readiness for the introduction of this new standard. If you would like to know more about the CES or our accredited audits please phone our Head Office on 01305 767104/www.wandptraining.co.uk
