This draft document has been developed to help Care Quality Commission’s inspectors assess whether hospice care services meet fundamental standards of quality and safety. It contains prompts for key lines of enquiries and identifies possible sources of evidence in relation to key indicators, which include safety, effectiveness, a caring culture, responsiveness and good leadership. The key lines of enquiry reflect the range of diverse services providing hospice care both where people stay overnight and in the community. (Edited publisher abstract)
