We have developed a template for Regulation 24(3) (a) and (b) six monthly unannounced visit by the registered provider (or delegate) to a designated centre for children in special care. The template is made up of an introduction and a template to support the reporting on the quality and safety of care and support and the plan to address any concerns identified with regards to the standard of care and support for children in special care units
These are not statutory documents/templates, and as such you are not required to use it; you are required to produce a report of your annual review and of your six monthly un-announced visit. A copy of the review must be made available to the children and to the chief inspector (if so requested).
The template is made up of the following parts:
- Introduction including what is required by the regulation
- A template for providers to complete
- Examples of approaches to assurance methods
The aim of the template is to support you to measure your performance against the national standards, and to identify areas for ongoing improvement.
