‘Inspection inside out’ podcast – Health declarations and your CQC New Manager application

Welcome to the latest episode of the 'Inspection inside out' podcast. In episodes 1 and 2, Abi discussed what you need to do to become a registered manager.

We have looked at what it means to be fit to be a manager, and what skills and qualifications you need, and in this episode, Abi will tackle health.

People are often concerned when they are asked within the process to sign a declaration to say they are fit and healthy for the job and to give their GPs details. Today, Abi will walk you through the law, CQC guidance for providers, what you should expect in an interview and more!

Meet Abi Spence
Abi, as the Registration and Inspection Specialist, has worked for and with Government agencies relevant to social care for the past 12+ years. Primarily with the Department of Health, Social Services Inspectorate, Commission for Social Care Inspection (CSCI) and since its inception, the Care Quality Commission (CQC). As part of this long involvement, Abi has developed a comprehensive and detailed understanding of relevant issues and has worked closely with stakeholders such as people that use services, carers, providers, local government, the Department of Health, Ofsted and the Audit Commission.

The ’Inspection inside out’ series is where Abi will de-mystify the process in a way that will help you decide whether a registered manager in the care sector is the right career for you.
