We provide advice, support and consultancy for organisations carrying out DBS checks or going through the Care Quality Commission (CQC) application process.
What is a DBS check?
DBS stands for ‘Disclosure and Barring Service’. This service helps employers to check whether new recruits are suitable to work with children and other vulnerable people. It is a legal requirement for all employers working in this sector to ensure that their employees are not barred from this sort of work.
How can we help with this?
All of the people who work with us are subject to a full DBS check before they commence employment, so this is an activity that we complete regularly. We are therefore in a good position to provide help and guidance on the process. If you require advice on the DBS checking process – please contact us and we will be happy to help.
What is the CQC?
The CQC is the body which monitors, inspects and regulates a number of services to ensure that they are of acceptable quality and safe.
Who needs to register with the CQC?
Every organisation, business or individual who carries out a ‘regulated activity’ needs to register with the CQC. Regulated activities are most services which are carried out under health or adult social care. All of the staff who work with us are trained and expected to fully comply with all of the standards that the CQC requires.
The registration process
The registration process is detailed and complicated, and can take a long time to complete. The CQC provides a wide range of information and guidance on this but it can be time consuming to read and assimilate all of the information that is required.
How can we help?
We provide a specialist service to help organisations navigate the application process for the CQC. As an established organisation working in the care and medical fields we have extensive experience of this sector and our long experience means that we are excellently positioned to provide detailed help and advice.
We work on a consultancy basis to guide you through the application process and ensure that you have everything in place to ensure that you receive your registration.
If you require support, advice and guidance in relation to DBS checks or CQC applications, we are here to help. Contact us today and we will be happy to provide further information on how we can support you.
