What does Pathfinder do?

It breaks down each quality statement that CQC assess

It allows organisations to self-assess how they are performing against what good looks like for each quality statement

The self-assessment feature tells organisations where the gaps are in their performance against each of the quality statements and puts the next step and priorities in a clear action plan.

You can securely upload all your evidence to the tool for centralised easy access to your evidence.
