Apply as a new provider with continuing registered managers
If you need to apply for registration as a new provider of care, this guide explains what you'll need to do.
There are two different guides for registering with us as a new service provider. Which one you should use depends on whether your registered managers are applying for new registrations, or whether they intend to continue in their current role, managing the same type of service and the same regulated activities at the same location(s).
This guide explains the process of registering with us if you are taking over locations from an existing registered provider, and any of the registered managers wish to continue their registration managing the same type of service and the same regulated activities at the same location(s).
To apply to register an NHS trust, please contact our National Customer Service Centre on 03000 61 61 61 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
You may need to apply because you're starting a new service that will be regulated by us (a care home, hospital, dental surgery, GP practice or home care agency, for example) or it may be because of a change in the legal entity running existing services.
If you are a new provider of NHS health care services, you can apply for registration and Monitor's provider licence at the same time. Find out more in joint licensing and registration.
Before you apply
You will need to be clear about the application you are making and have all of the required information ready. You will need to understand the requirements of the legislation and be able to explain and evidence how you will comply with them.
You, your nominated individual and proposed registered manager (if you have them) will need to be prepared to attend interviews and to answer questions and your buildings must be ready when the inspector undertakes the registration site visit.
As well as the general preparation, there are specific pieces of information, like Disclosure and Barring Service checks, counter-signed by CQC, which you must have obtained before you can submit your application. Compiling this information can take weeks to organise and you should factor this into your planning from the outset.
