Internal Inspections

At Choice, we believe that the people using our services are best placed to identify what we are doing well in providing quality outcomes for service users and what we could do better.

So, in addition to the Internal Inspections carried out by our Operations Team, we also operate an Expert Auditors (EA) scheme These individuals who use our services are employed to carry out one task of management monitoring per month, at a different service (and alongside an Area Director) and report back with their findings.

Two of our EAs recently presented to Choice Care Group’s Board of Directors with the following feedback:

Therefore, in addition to the Internal Inspections carried out by our operations team, Choice Care Group also operate an Expert Auditors (EA) scheme whereby individuals using our services are employed to carry out one act of management monitoring per month, to a different service alongside an area director and report back with their findings.

Two of our EAs recently presented to Choice Care Group’s Board of Directors; this is some of their feedback:

  • “Choice is an organisation that is going in the right direction”
  • “Having us as expert auditors really encourages services users to be more involved in the running the homes.  This is just the start of … service users becoming more involved in running the organisation”
  • “I ask the people living there what they do all day, how they get on with the other people living there and how they get on with the staff”
  • “We want updates to show you have acted on our recommendations or if you don’t agree with them, (we want to know) why?

We really value the insight the EAs provide into the way our services work. As an organisation, we are always looking to further improve what we do and the EAs are an essential part of helping us to do that.
