Factual accuracy check: how we will respond

  • Organisations we regulate

After we have considered your points and any supporting information, we will decide whether to amend the draft report.

The form will indicate whether we have accepted your points. If we have not, we will explain the reasons why.

If we have evidence that supports a point in the draft report, we are entitled to rely on this. If you dispute the point, but you have not provided any evidence in support we will ask you to provide it.

All factual accuracy responses will be reviewed by another member of CQC’s staff from the relevant Inspection Directorate, who is authorised to sign off the related inspection report. This member of staff will be independent of the original site visit.
