As a healthcare provider, adding new sites to your Care Quality Commission (CQC) registration can be a challenging and time-consuming process. However, it is necessary to ensure that all your locations are operating within the CQC’s guidelines and regulations. In this blog, we will provide a step-by-step guide on how to add new sites to your CQC registration, so you can ensure your organisation stays compliant and meets the required standards.
Step 1: Tell the CQC about the location you want to add
To add a new location to your CQC registration, you will need to inform the CQC about the site you want to add. You can do this by using the “Add a location: Provider application” form, which is available on the CQC website. This form is required for adding the first or only location.
Step 2: Additional forms for specific services
If you are planning to provide a residential service for people with a learning disability or autism, you will need to make sure you meet the requirements for these services. To do this, you will need to complete an additional form that outlines how you will meet the requirements for these services. This form is available on the CQC website and is called the “Additional form for providers of services for autistic people and people with a learning disability.”
Step 3: More than one new location
If you are planning to add more than one new location, you will need to complete a separate form for each location. These forms are also available on the CQC website.
