Sheila will try to answer as many of your English Social Care questions as possible, giving priority to frequently asked questions and questions regarding current events and trends.
Can we have 2 registered managers?
This is a very good question.
The answer to your question is on the CQC website and this is what it says:
“12. If I am in a job share post, do both managers have to apply?
Yes, because both managers are equally accountable for managing the regulated activity. Where more than one person manages a regulated activity through a job-share arrangement they both need to register to manage that regulated activity at the location where they are both responsible for the regulated activity’s management.
You will both have to complete an application form and provide all the necessary documentation.
If one manager is currently registered with CQC, the new applicant must provide the existing manager’s CQC registration ID, which can be found at the top right-hand corner of the manager’s certificate of registration.
All new applicants will be interviewed and their fitness assessed. If one manager is currently registered with CQC, it is unlikely that we will re-interview and reassess their fitness unless we identify concerns around the job share. “
All good wishes.
