Objective A - Improve the quality of care in Staffordshire.

Objective A - Improve the quality of care in Staffordshire.


  • Ensuring the quality and staff capacity within the care sector through the implementation of our Workforce Strategy
  • Maintaining and enhancing our focus on quality assurance and quality improvement. The Council has developed a Quality Assurance Framework and our care home contracts will continue to align with this enabling the Council to effectively manage the risks and quality improvement work with the market.
  • Targeted quality assurance and quality improvement actions, including from:
    • The Provider Improvement Response Team (joint between the Council and the ICBs) includes nurses and other staff who work with care homes who require more intensive support to help them improve.
    • The Council’s Quality Assurance Team which monitors and supports contracted adult social care services.
    • The Care Market Development Team, which assists providers with staff recruitment, training and retention.
    • We will continue working with MPFT to enable access to the wide range of clinical capability within MPFT.
    • Where services are repeatedly identified by CQC as requiring improvement, and unable to demonstrate sustained improvement despite advice and assistance, the Council will consider whether it can continue to make new placements and also consider supporting a move of residents, where this is in their interests on a balance of risks.
