Registered Manager: How to register with the CQC as a new Provider in a new start-up dental practice

It is a legal requirement under the Health and Social Care Act 2008 (Regulated Activities) Regulations 2014 for all dental practices to be registered with the Care Quality Commission (CQC).

There are 3 types of CQC registration:

  1. Individual
  2. Partnership or
  3. Organisation.

This type of registration is called the legal entity and it is essential that all practices are registered as the correct legal entity.

All dental practices that are registered with the CQC are required to have a Registered Manager.

The only exception is where the Service Provider (usually the Practice Principal or the Practice Owner i.e. the legal entity) is an Individual (i.e. not part of a Partnership and not a Limited Company) who manages the service the practice provides on a day-to-day basis and who has the necessary skills and experience to do this.

All other practices require a Registered Manager.

This course is aimed at assisting new Registered Providers and new Registered Managers If one is required) with completing their CQC application(s) in a dental practice that is a new start-up and is not currently registered with the CQC.
