Popular FAQs

Answered by the experts at CQC Compliance.

What is CQC Compliance?

CQC Compliance supports new and existing providers from across the healthcare sector, ensuring that they never fall foul of the regulatory framework of the Care Quality Commission (CQC). We support our clients with a number of key services, including initial support through the CQC registration process, the production of bespoke policies and procedures, and ongoing compliance support that ensures your service exceeds the expectations of the CQC.

Can you help us register with the CQC?

Yes. Any healthcare provider based in England that provides a ‘regulated activity’ is required by law to register their service with the CQC. The process of registration requires an incredible attention to detail, dedication and the ability to be adaptable throughout the process – that’s why many providers lean on us for support. At CQC Compliance, we guide our clients as they navigate the difficulties and complexities of registering with the CQC. We have an efficient and effective process that can take the pain out of this process, supported by a team comprised of former CQC inspectors, CQC registration managers and Clinical Nurse Leads with extensive experience in supporting providers with their CQC registration. While our primary aim is to ensure you achieve a successful CQC registration, our wider mission is to impart our understanding of the regulatory framework of the CQC to ensure you remain a compliant provider from the start of your journey onwards.

Why are bespoke policies and procedures so important?

CQC Compliance recognise that bespoke policies and procedures are a fundamental requirement in being CQC-ready – and more importantly are a vital component in improving your service. Increasingly, the CQC is placing more emphasis and expectation upon on every healthcare provider’s suite of policies and procedures, requiring them to be fully bespoke and tailored to the requirements of the individual provider – with the era of templated, generic policies and procedures no longer being a viable option. If a provider’s suite of policies and procedures aren’t reflective of the service or are outdated, this can result in severe implications when your service is inspected. Our in-house Policies Team produces bespoke policies and procedures tailored to the exact requirements of each service we work with. Our team draws on the experience of specialists from different fields within the sector to ensure that our clients receive documentation that is not only exceptionally produced but continually updated in line with regulatory updates from the CQC and other healthcare bodies.
