You will get an indication, but nothing definitive as to exactly when your nxt inspection will be
The answers will be quite generic:
- If all goes well, we expect to visit at least once every 5 years
- Future visits will be focused visits on specific areas, we will tell you what these will be but Well-Led and Effective is always included
- We will do random visits to spot check what we are told is factual
- There might be specific visits if they are alerted to something untoward
A reasonable rule of thumb is that if you have had a recent visit and the interview goes well, the next visit will be some way off.
Even if this goes well, if you haven't been inspected for a few years, the CQC will want to ensure that you have been seen within this 5 year target
