Challenging a notice of proposal to refuse registration
Registering a new service with CQC or registering as a manager may not always be straightforward. With a service, there can be issues with buildings, such as the size of rooms or the number of proposed rooms. Alternatively, as either a manager or a provider, CQC may simply find that you have not met the requirements of the regulations.
While the regulations themselves are fairly straightforward, what CQC considers to be “best practice” or “guidance” (which informs their decision) may not be. As a result, getting registered can be difficult.
What happens if your registration application is refused?
If you attempt to register and CQC are not happy with your application, they will serve a Notice of Proposal to refuse registration. This can be a real setback to your plans. It will cost you time and money and inevitably cause a good deal of frustration.
We are experienced in dealing with refusals of registration for both services and managers. We can help you get registered and up and running.
