BIA Assessments (DoLS Form 3) and CQC Ratings

During BIA training courses, we sometimes refer to CQC ratings and suggest that BIAs should identify and record this rating in their Form 3 as it may influence many elements of their assessment and conclusions. It is noteworthy that Court of Protection judges have referenced CQC ratings in judgments as part of the best interests 'analysis'. For an example of this, see London Borough of X v MR & Ors (Rev1) [2022] EWCOP 1 (para 102). Further up to date record keeping guidance for BIAs is available in the second edition of The DoLS Handbook
