Care Quality Commission (CQC) Registration
The Care Quality Commission (CQC) is a taxpayer-funded body responsible for regulating health and adult social care services (provided either by the NHS, local authorities, private companies or voluntary organisations) in England.
All establishments where health-care professionals (e.g. doctor, nurse etc.) undertake certain 'regulated activities' must register with the CQC under the Health and Social Care Act 2008 (Regulated Activities) Regulations 2010.
