Understanding Your CQC Registration Requirements

To assist new businesses with the CQC registration process, including those providing domiciliary or residential care services, QCS has created a CQC Registration Module that provides you with all the policies, procedures and guidance you need to successfully meet the essential requirements of both domiciliary care registration and residential care registration.

Successfully registering and running a care service requires thought about the policies and practices that are needed to achieve compliance. The CQC Registration Module includes policies and procedures which cover all compliance-related activities within your business. These cover the following categories: Administration; CQC Compliance; Care Management; Health and Safety; Human Resources; Catering; Maintenance; and Quality Assurance.

Together these policies form the basis of how your organisation is run, enabling you to confidently complete your residential or domiciliary care registration with the Care Quality Commision.

Case Studies

Many of our clients choose to go ‘on the record’, telling the story of why they selected QCS to solve their problems and how it has helped them to take control of compliance.

  • Excellent product for a start-up care organisation

    This is an excellent product that l would recomend to any start-up care organisation. It got us up and running our business in no time at all. I rate this package at 5 Stars Andrew Nkala- Creative Healthcare Solutions Ltd
  • very good

    I wish I was able to download a lot of material when I want rather than for it to be dished out in piecemeals. Once one buys the product I should be able to acess it in my home rather than just coming to work. Florence Muyambo
  • such a great help easy to use

    it is a great system my only comment is with care plans.it would be helpful t have a generic plan to use that we can complete each section to meet the needs of individuals. i am new to the system so I may be missing something. otherwise it is a very helpful system. Lisa
