What do I need to do to be registered with the CQC as a limited company?


I am a new limited company providing quality care services to all specifically nursing and care homes. I am a well-experienced qualified worker. I am insured with liability insurance for these health care settings. I have been questioned about CQC. I want to know what I would need to be registered in with CQC as a limited company?




Dear N,


From your email I am unclear whether you are supplying care or if you are a supplier of goods to registered care providers.


There is an extremely useful document on the CQC website entitled: The Scope of Registration.


CQC only registers the services identified in this document.


Anyone who operates a service which is identified in the document and is not registered with CQC is breaking the law but I am presuming that you are not supplying care workers but are supplying some associated service.


Read this document and if you need to you can then contact me again.


Best wishes.
