Joint licensing and registration

Organisations we regulate

You can save time by applying for your CQC registration and NHS provider licence from NHS Improvement through a single application form.

The streamlined process is only for organisations applying as a new service provider for both the registration and licence.

You should not use this route if you are:

  • already registered with CQC
  • a partnership or an individual
  • exempt from needing an NHS provider licence
