CQC Registration Support

Allow us to care for your organisation while you care for your clients.

Our expert team will tailor the support provided to meet your needs, regardless of whether this is your first registration with CQC or you are an already established service looking to expand. We offer support and guidance on how you can accurately complete your registration, ensuring nothing is missed.

This service includes an initial call where we get to know you and your plans to develop a care service. We work with you to complete the required provider and registered manager applications and write your statement of purpose. In addition to this we also support you to complete a business plan, staff training matrix and to prepare for your CQC registration interviews.

Our Key Registration Services

We designed our CQC registration guidance services with you in mind. They’ll help you navigate the ins and outs, and are personalised, enabling you to provide exactly what your organisation needs in a cost effective way. And we’ll be there for you every step of the way: online, on the phone, remotely, or in person via site visits. 

Telephone Consultation

We offer a telephone consultation to really get to know you and your organisation, ensuring a truly personalised service can be offered.

This service is available either via video conference or telephone and is charged at £75.

Preparation and Guidance for your interviews

If you would like help with preparation and guidance for your interviews,  this service is charged at £150 and will take place after the CQC have arranged your interview and requested you provide additional information.

This involves a telephone / video conference call that usually lasts around 2 hours and the preparation of a report outlining the answers that need to be given to the CQC during your interview.

Fully Personalised Policies and Procedures

We recommend purchasing our ‘Silver Policies and procedures pack’ after you are registered. This contains all of the policies you should ever need, written specifically for your service. This is normally charged at £1,195 but we will give you a 10% discount if purchased at the same time as registration support.

Application Support

We can support you in the completion or review of both your ‘Provider’ & ‘Registered Manager’ applications prior to submission.

Startup Policies

This pack contains all of the policies required by the CQC for registration. This is charged at £235 and includes a discount of £235 on our Silver policy pack for when your application is successful.

Just the help you need

If you prefer to undertake your own registration, we can check and provide guidance on your completed documents, this service is charged at £75 per hour.

Comprehensive, yet easy to understand, our service ensures all areas of your organisation are compliant with the necessary regulatory requirements.

The Steps For Successful CQC Registration

Step 1.

Apply for your DBS check.

As part of your application, you will need to enclose a DBS disclosure number with your forms. So, to complete the process as quickly as possible, obtaining a DBS check should be the first action you take.

Step 2.

Complete your Business Plan.

This will give you a lot of the information that you will need for your Statement of Purpose. You should describe your business. Cover your aims and objectives, strategies, sales, marketing and financial forecasts.

Step 3.

Complete your Statement of Purpose.

A statement of purpose for a business describes what you do, where you do it and who you do it for.  You have to include a statement of purpose as part of your application and it must include: your aims and objectives, the services you provide, the different needs of people who use your service, your contact details, your service’s legal entity and the addresses of places where services are provided.

More information is available here: https://www.cqc.org.uk/guidance-providers/registration/register-new-provider/write-your-statement-purpose

Step 4.

Ask your accountant for a Financial viability statement.

The financial viability statement needs to be completed by either your accountant or a bank or financial services firm regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA).

Step 5.

Complete your Registered Manager application.

Don’t forget, you are allowed more than one registered manager, you also need to be aware that if you are sharing a registered manager with another service, then they will need to be able to show they can manage their time effectively.

Step 6.

Complete your Provider application.

The process of actually completing all of the forms ready to submit to the CQC can be a time consuming process. Hopefully, after completing the previous steps, you will have a much better understanding of what is required. Don’t forget we can help you with this, or you can ask us to complete it on your behalf.

Step 7.

Submit your application.

Review the checklist and make sure that you have included all documents,  your statement of purpose, your policies and procedures and your Registered Manager application before you submit everything to the CQC.

What Documents Will I Need?

When you submit your application to the CQC, you will also need to submit supporting documents such as a Business Plan or a sample Care Plan depending on the type of service that you are registering.  Your application will be returned if any of these supporting documents is missing.
