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!
