When applying for a licence with the Care Quality Commission you must have at the forefront of the business that you wish to run and the services which you will provide the health, safety and well being of all individuals who you will be providing care to.
In order to submit a Care Quality Commission application your company will need a nominated Registered Manager and a Responsible Person. These two individuals will be held responsible for all services and guidelines expected of a licensed company.
The application requires advanced Data Barring Service checks to be undertaken with signed authorisation on all identification submitted by a nominated post office. These checks can take time and need to be requested as soon as you have made purchase of your Franchise Business. The certificates received from these checks are to be included in the Care Quality Commission Application so quickness is the key.
Registered Managers for all applicant business have to undergo an interview with the Care Quality Commission. These interviews are necessary for them to ensure that the appointed Registered Manager have the core ethics and industry knowledge they expect of an individual in a position of authority in a care business who is responsible for the well being of all staff members, clients and support provided.
The Care Quality Commission provides all care providers with spot inspections to ensure the business is adhering to all guidelines and regulations that are expected of them. These inspections should not be viewed as a negative but as a way to prove that you are running a quality business that is acting responsibly within the Health and Social Care Industry. And also the inspectors will always provide you with feedback and suggestions on areas they think you are exceptional in or that could benefit from more attention.
We should all welcome the support and guidance of the Care Quality Commission as they are the authority that protect our clients, our businesses and our family, friends and ourselves who may need care provision tomorrow or in the future.
