CQC’s Transitional Monitoring Approach (TMA)

The CQC is changing its approach to regulating dental practices in England. The commission has adapted its processes and a transitional approach to monitoring services has been implemented. This approach is called the Transitional Monitoring Approach (TMA).

At Apolline we have put together a list of things to include when speaking to the CQC inspector. You should ensure that your responses reflect what happens in your practice and any responses you give should be verifiable as the inspector may ask for evidence.

Our support service offers you:

  • Transitional Monitoring Approach Questionnaire Prompts.
  • Support and coaching.

Your whole team will have full access to the Apolline online training courses.

There are currently 32 training courses available and we have many more coming soon!
