External Providers and Facilities
National Guidance document 4.4h Using External Providers and Facilities had become unwieldy as a result of covering such a wide ground. We have therefore split it into a new document 4.4g Selecting External Providers and Facilities, covering the selection process, and a revised document 4.4h Using External Providers covering monitoring and the respective roles of establishment and provider staff. As a result we have also made a minor amendment to 4.4f Assessing a Provider Checklist.
You can find all three documents in the Good Practice Section (section 4) of the National Guidance website.
