The Quality Care Commission have recently announced the suspension of their routine inspection programme. This was suspended in March 2020 in response to Covid-19 and they have confirmed that they do not intend to resume it for the immediate future. The CQC have continued to use a mix of onsite and off-site monitoring to ensure the public have assurance as to the safety and quality of the care they receive. As we emerge from the pandemic the CQC have confirmed that they are further developing their monitoring approach. In accordance with this approach they carried out a review of the data available to them about St Michael’s Hospice on 05-04-2023.

The CQC stated that they have not found evidence that they need to carry out an inspection or reassess their rating at this stage. This could change at any time if they receive new information. They will continue to monitor data about this service.

Please note, this does not amount to an assessment of the rating for this service under section 46 of the Health and Social Care Act 2008.
