Location, Location, Location!

It’s really important to remember that you are registering each of your locations with the CQC where a regulated activity is being carried on. Regulated activities range from personal care and surgical procedures, to accommodation for those who require nursing. Review the regulated activities list and if you provide it within a given location, then that location must be registered with the CQC.  A quick call to the Quality Compliance Systems team will help to answer any questions that you may have.

Key Appointments: Registered Manager and Nominated Individual

It’s not just your service you are registering; you need to also ensure that you register the manager who is in day-to-day charge of your business: the Registered Manager. In addition to this you need to appoint a Nominated Individual who is the key contact with the CQC.  This person is responsible for supervising the regulated activity and can be the same person as the Registered Manager.

CQC Registration can be a daunting prospect, but QCS are here to help you every step of the way.
