Change of Company Name

Hi Sheila,

I am changing the name of my company which currently is registered and runs four locations. This is a complete companies house name change, including operating as our new brand etc, although we are staying at our registered address. What do I need to do to inform CQC and keep both legal and as little in the way of disturbance as possible?

Dear Paul,

CQC’s website is not easy to navigate is it but I have discovered the notification forms that you need.

You go to this page on their website

On the right hand side of the page you will find this form:

Statutory Notification: Changes to a Provider’s or Manager’s Registered Details.

And you then need to go to:

Statutory notification: Regulation 15, Care Quality Commission (Registration) Regulations 2009 - Changes affecting a provider or manager and fill out the form.

Good Luck!
