The simple answer is No but maybe.

The actual CQC registration process is relatively straight forward, and you can get though it without any outside help.
However the CQC expect you to have a full Quality Management System in placebefore you even start, and drafting this can be very time consuming and daunting for anyone new to the process.

Documents you have to produce:-

  1. How will you comply with the 5 Key Domains
  2. A Governance Document
  3. A Quality Management Statement
  4. A Safeguarding Policy Statement

Drafting these will take several days, and if you don't already have a system in mind, you will likely start by purchasing policies from a supplier and rading through them to produce the above documents.
Once you start trading, you will be expected to explain all of the above to your staff as part of their training
