CQC (Care Quality Commission) Consultancy

We understand that the task of preparing for and applying for CQC registration can feel like a mammoth one, understandably so with it recently being reported that the registration process could take between 300 - 400 hours! Gaining registration certainly requires a great deal of time and resource, which can be difficult to find when you are already running a busy service. We have therefore developed our consultancy services to offer a streamlined and proven approach to supporting and guiding you through the entire registration process. From advising how to obtain a DBS check, the provision of individually tailored policies and even the actual application submission, we can do it all.
