CQC Registration

All independent health and social care providers including GP's that carry out regulated activities must be registered with the Care Quality Commission. To be registered, providers must show that they are meeting new essential standards of quality and safety. Within these essential standards there are 16 regulations that directly relate to the quality and safety of care provided these are:

  • Care and welfare of people who use services
  • Assessing and monitoring the quality of service provision
  • Safeguarding people who use services from abuse
  • Cleanliness and infection control
  • Management of medicines
  • Meeting nutritional needs
  • Safety and suitability of premises
  • Safety, availability and suitability of equipment
  • Respecting and involving people who use services
  • Consent to care and treatment
  • Complaints
  • Records
  • Requirements relating to workers
  • Staffing
  • Supporting workers
  • Cooperating with other providers

There are a further 12 regulations that relate to the day to day management of a service and providers will be required to evidence that they are meeting all 28 regulations in order that they can be CQC registered. This is a daunting task for even the most established and savvy company.
