The CQC is introducing new registration application and registration variation forms for providers. The new forms have been developed to take account of the changes to regulations from 1 April, including the introduction of the fundamental standards.
This change will affect all health and social care providers, including those GP providers who use online services. Around two-thirds of GP providers currently use online services to apply to make changes to their registration.
The new forms will be made available to users of online services between Friday 17 and Monday 20 April – and any draft forms will be deleted at this stage. More information is available here.
The CQC has published a news article on its website, explaining the phased process by which they will begin accepting the new offline forms and stop accepting the old versions.
