‘Be prepared’ – it’s the motto of the Scouts, but we would quite like it to be yours, if you are facing an upcoming inspection!
It might seem like common sense, but our inspectors often find that basic things like reading the Manual, making sure you have the right paperwork to hand and ensuring sure the equipment is serviced, are often overlooked.
If you don’t prepare properly, it’s likely that you could reach 20 deficiencies, at which point the inspector may decide that a re-inspection is in order, which is carried out at the cost of the practice.
The PSS team is always available to offer advice if you have a question about what needs to be ready for inspection day.
