Submitting notifications during the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak
You must send your notification by email or submit it online. Do not send it by post. This is because our offices are closed and our staff are working from home.
When and how to tell us about the outcome of an application to deprive a person of their liberty.
How to notify us
If you have an account with the CQC Provider Portal, you can send us your notification online.
If you do not have access to the Provider Portal, you can notify us by filling in a form and emailing it to HSCA_notifications@cqc.org.uk.
When you need to tell us about an application to deprive a person of their liberty
If an application to deprive a person of their liberty is made:
- you only need to send us your notification when you know the outcome of the application or if you withdraw it. You do not need to tell us when the application is first made.
- you must notify us about the application and its outcome or withdrawal at the same time, using the same form.
- you must notify us about the outcome of any application made to the Court of Protection even where you have not made the application yourself, e.g. local authority applications.
- once you know the outcome, you must notify us without delay.
