Scope of registration for new domiciliary care service

I am a trained nurse ( Mental health ). I am thinking of starting my own business of providing domiciliary care . What is the scope of registration in this area please?

Dear Lansana,

Whoever the provider be that an NHS hospital or a small care home or a small domiciliary care service a similar process has to be gone through to register the service providing it falls within the remit of the relevant legislation and regulation.

The organisation responsible for registration the Care Quality Commission sets out the full scope of registration on their website including the relevant legislation.

I believe that you will find all the information and links you need on this page:

Before you apply to register there will be other questions that arise for you I am sure, so do come back to me if I can help again.

Best wishes.

Sheila
