Social care inspection: consultation – themes and questions - easy read

We are calling for evidence to support the Independent Review of Inspection, Scrutiny and Regulation (IRISR) of social care support which will also include a range of in person and virtual stakeholder events. This easy read guide provides more information about the themes and questions in the consultation.

Theme 3 - How should inspections be done?


  • would a system work where the same regulator inspected all services?
    • If yes, why?
    • If no, why not?
  • should there be different regulators for:
    • inspection – checking if things are working well
    • and improvement – making sure things getting better

If yes, why?

If no, why not?

  • how can we make sure that rules and inspection are designed to make services better?
  • should this be the most important thing?
  • what would it look like?
  • what should happen if something goes wrong in a service?
  • who should be responsible for making improvements to services?
  • how do we make sure regulators do a good job?
