Do I Need To Go Through A New Registration Process To Add More Regulated Activities?

Good day,
I am currently regulated by CQC but l wanted to add more regulated activities. My question is: Do I need to go through a new registration process and interview?
Many thanks

Dear B,


Thank you for your question,


The Care Quality Commission website has guidance about variations to registration.


You will see that one of the forms mentioned is entitled  'Add a regulated activity'. 


The form can be found here:


It says on this page that "You can now add a regulated activity online, using our Provider Portal. Nearly all providers have now been invited to sign up for an account."


If you don't have a provider portal then this page also tells you how to apply for one.


This is now a much more straightforward process than it used to be so I hope that you will be able to make the application required easily. Any further questions please come back to me.


Best wishes,
