This may be a significant challenge for a would-be start-up service, as navigating the CQC registration requirements is often a daunting task.

Understanding Your CQC Registration Requirements

To assist new businesses with the CQC registration process, including those providing domiciliary or residential care services, QCS has created a CQC Registration Module that provides you with all the policies, procedures and guidance you need to successfully meet the essential requirements of both domiciliary care registration and residential care registration.

Successfully registering and running a care service requires thought about the policies and practices that are needed to achieve compliance. The CQC Registration Module includes policies and procedures which cover all compliance-related activities within your business. These cover the following categories: Administration; CQC Compliance; Care Management; Health and Safety; Human Resources; Catering; Maintenance; and Quality Assurance.

Together these policies form the basis of how your organisation is run, enabling you to confidently complete your residential or domiciliary care registration with the Care Quality Commision.

Case Studies

Many of our clients choose to go ‘on the record’, telling the story of why they selected QCS to solve their problems and how it has helped them to take control of compliance.

  • New QCS Customer - Waterfield Supported Homes Ltd.

    We used a previous policy system, which required us to manually input all the logo and customise our organisational policies each time there's an update - this was cumbersome! We are glad that the QCS policies appear more robust than what we used. We are willing to recommend QCS Systems. The webinar by the customer care executive (Kate Lockley) was comprehensive and made navigation simpler and easy. Christiana
