How do I register to become a care manager? I want to set up my own agency and group home.
You cannot apply to be a Registered Manager, you have to apply to be a Registered Manager of a particular service.
If you are applying to be the Registered Manager in connection with a new service then you have to submit both applications at the same time ie to register as a new provider and to register as the Registered Manager of that service.
There is quite a lot of work to be done to be ready to register and there is straightforward and helpful guidance on the CQC website along with the application forms:
Sheila Scott OBE from National Care Association (NCA). Care is Sheila’s life; she possesses a strong command of the issues facing the care sector informed by her long career as a nursing professional, the owner and manager of a care business and as a leader in the care sector.
Sheila will try to answer as many of your questions as possible, giving priority to frequently asked questions and questions regarding current events and trends.
Please note that Sheila can not offer answers to matters requiring legal advice. If your matter concerns a specific service provider, please contact the CQC.
