Trusts that received a PIR before 12 June will be inspected using our previous methodology and assessment frameworks

Categories:
  • Organisations we regulate

Published: 14 June 2017


On 12 June we published new information about how we regulate NHS trusts, alongside our new assessment framework for NHS healthcare organisations. The framework includes our key lines of enquiry and prompts – which set out what we look at when we inspect services – as well as the characteristics of our ratings.

NHS trusts will be inspected under the new framework from now, with primary medical and NHS 111 services, and independent healthcare organisations following later.

What to do if you have already received a PIR

The only exception to this is if you are an NHS trust that received a PIR from us before 12 June. As we have completed our first programme of comprehensive inspections, any PIR you received before12 June will be for a follow-up inspection that focuses on specific areas. In these cases, we will follow the process set out in our 2015 provider handbook and assessment framework.
