Do additional office locations need to be CQC registered? | QCS

Dear Sheila,
We are planning to open additional office locations to expand our business. We are running a paperless office, so documents are scanned and kept on a centralised computer database at head office and are accessible by remote log on. Do we have to register the additional locations if we do not hold any service user or worker details on site?

Dear David,

I have always understood that each office needs to be registered with the regulator but I also think that their website is unclear.

I would suggest that you double check with their call centre on 03000 616161

Further information about adding to your current registration can be found on the Care Quality Commission website:

Best wishes.
