7 Key Steps of CQC registration

The CQC advises 7 steps to CQC Registration. Complete each and every one of these 7 key steps in order to gain your registration. The following is a quick and handy list, all easily referenced on the CQC website. They are:
Step 1: Apply for DBS check
Step 2: Finalise Statement of Purpose
Step 3: Obtain References
Step 4: Complete Registered Manager application
Step 5: Complete your application
Step 6: Submit your application, Statement of Purpose and Registered Manager application (if applicable).
Step 7: Review checklist before submitting application.

Location, Location, Location!

It’s really important to remember that you are registering each of your locations with the CQC where a regulated activity is being carried on. Regulated activities range from personal care and surgical procedures, to accommodation for those who require nursing. Review the regulated activities list and if you provide it within a given location, then that location must be registered with the CQC.  A quick call to the Quality Compliance Systems team will help to answer any questions that you may have.

Key Appointments: Registered Manager and Nominated Individual

It’s not just your service you are registering; you need to also ensure that you register the manager who is in day-to-day charge of your business: the Registered Manager. In addition to this you need to appoint a Nominated Individual who is the key contact with the CQC.  This person is responsible for supervising the regulated activity and can be the same person as the Registered Manager.

CQC Registration can be a daunting prospect, but QCS are here to help you every step of the way.

  • Starting up business

    If you are opening a new business this is the best way forward as the team help you through the registration processs and also personalise all the policies for you. However before they do that you have to complete their application which is quiet hard and time consuming and wished they did that with you and checked this before it gets finalised. They do help and go through this and explain it how to complete. Over all my customer support… Khan
