CQC Registration Support

Ensuring your CQC registration goes as smoothly as possible.

Partnering with you to achieve a successful CQC registration.

Registering your service can often be time consuming and tricky if you are unsure what is required. Our task force team have registered numerous services in a variety of different disciplines and can guide you through each step to ensure a successful registration.

What is CQC registration?

The CQC registration process is the way in which healthcare providers demonstrate that they meet the fundamental standards of quality and safety. To become registered with the CQC, healthcare providers must undergo an application process that involves several steps.

Do you need to register with the CQC?

Anyone that provides a care service in England must be registered with the CQC, if a care provider has failed to register then they may have committed an offence. When registering, you must provide details of all regulated activities or services that are provided. For information on registration and regulated activities, read our guide to CQC registration.

What we do.

What does CQC registration involve?

Healthcare providers must complete an online application form and pay a registration fee that is appropriate for the kind of service provided. The CQC will then review the application and determine whether the provider meets the eligibility criteria for registration.

The next step would be completing the Provider Information Collection (PIC). The PIC is a detailed questionnaire that asks for information about the provider's services, staff, governance, and policies and procedures. It helps the CQC to understand how the provider operates and identify any areas of concern there may be. In order to register a service with the CQC, providers must then supply evidence to support the information they have provided in the PIC. This includes policies and procedures, staff records, training records, and service user feedback.

Once the CQC has received the application and supporting evidence, it will conduct an inspection of the provider's premises, services, and records. The inspection may be announced or unannounced, and it will involve speaking to staff, service users, and their families.

After the inspection, the CQC will rate the provider on a scale of Outstanding, Good, Requires Improvement, or Inadequate. The rating reflects how well the provider meets the CQC's standards for quality and safety using the 5 KLOE’s (key lines of enquiry).

Healthcare providers must continue to meet the CQC's standards in order to maintain their registration. The CQC may conduct further inspections or request additional evidence to ensure that standards are being maintained.
