Registered manager interview for role

Being a registered manager with CQC, if and when i leave my current home, do i have to go through the interview process again to be the registered manager of the new home if i get another job in another care home .
can you let me know please ASAP

Dear Edward,

If you are applying to be registered as the Manager of a different service with a different employer then the answer to your question is yes, you will have to go through the while process again.

You will have to apply filling out the registration form with all the relevant information.

There is a fast track option available for registered managers that meet certain criteria with the CQC. You can contact them for more details and to find out if you are eligible for a fast track application.

This may seem tedious but no two services are the same and CQC must ensure that you are a fit and proper person to be able to run the service that you are applying to be the Registered Manager of.

Good Luck!
