If there is a change of Registered Manager at your organisation you need to inform the CQC of this as soon as you are aware of this.

For example, if the Registered Manager is retiring or leaving the organisation you should be making provisions for a  takeover of the responsibilities a few months prior to the event. In the event that you have to have a change of a Registered Manager due to unforeseen circumstances you should notify the CQC as soon after the event as possible.

To do so you need to:

  1. Fill out the Changes to a provider’s or manager’s registered details form and email a copy  to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.You can also notify the CQC by logging into your CQC online portal. [To access your account CLICK HERE]

  2. The registered manager will need to undergo a CQC countersigned DBS check before they will be accepted by the CQC.
    (GMC numbers in lieu of a CQC countersigned DBS check is no longer accepted.)
