Remember that your practice needs a CQC registered manager

Remember that Section 33 of the Health and Social Care Act 2008 states that it is a legal requirement for practices to have a registered manager with the CQC (Care Quality Commission). 

Whenever a registered manager leaves a practice or wishes to hand on the responsibility to another person, the CQC must be notified within 12 weeks of the previous manager leaving.

Further information on the role of a registered manager and how to notify the CQC of any changes is available on the CQC website.
