Care Quality Commission (CQC)

CQC Provider Handbooks - Look up information for your sector, including guidance about regulations, how to register, what incidents you must notify CQC about and what they look at when they carry out inspections.

Making Changes to your Registration - Please check your registration on the CQC website and make sure you do have a registered manager listed as a handful of practices around the country do not and the CQC are about to crack down on this and may even take legal action! You may not be aware that you must update your CQC registration whenever there is a change in your partnership or changes in the location/s your practice provides services from. The process is unfortunately rather cumbersome, but it’s just another hoop we have to jump through!
