How long is the wait for a decision on a CQC application? | QCS

When CQC refuse an application, do they do it straight away? They are making me wait 2 weeks until they have done the report. I am so anxious to find out. If they refuse registration, can we reapply or do we have a chance to redeem the situation?

Thank you for your question. CQC takes time to consider applications as they assess all the information you have provided. I appreciate this is stressful, however. You can reapply if you are unsuccessful but before you do, its worth understanding why your application was unsuccessful. You will get a report from CQC and it is a good idea to use the report as a template to create an action plan to improve on the areas that were not strong enough. Best of luck with your application.
