A copy of the new Risk Assessment Document, which will be used in the pilot, is available for you to look at on our website.

This risk assessment review has been going on for some time and we are now able to take its development further and carry out a pilot to evaluate how it works in practice.

The pilot will focus on a sample of services, which will cover all of the service types that we regulate. The method of choosing the sample will take account of the number of services registered within each service type and will also ensure that services from rural and urban settings are included.
