The Care Quality Commission (CQC) has provided the following response.

The dates each of the registered Child and Adolescent Mental Health Tier 4 inpatient services were last inspected are attached, due to the size of the data.

The CQC carry out either comprehensive or focused inspections. For National Health Service trusts, these inspections will usually be unannounced.

In a few instances, where there are very good reasons, the CQC may let a service know it is coming. For example, the CQC may contact a trust to make sure senior management are present to answer its questions.

To enable the CQC to observe normal practice in a service, it has introduced more unannounced inspections as part of its comprehensive inspection methodology.

Because the CQC requests information from providers beforehand, it will carry out the inspection within three months of the provider submitting its provider information request. However, the CQC will not announce the day on which it intends to inspect.
