Ready-made pack for your online application
There are 3 distinct parts to the online application process
The form filling is the easy part, and most applicants find that just describing their system can take up to 20 hours to put together and similarly with designing their quality systems.
If you're a sole trader, small provider, or early-stage startup, it's not advisable to begin with complex systems. A better approach is to start with basic systems, achieve basic CQC Compliance and upgrade when you're ready for the next stage.
The STANDARD Edition of the Quality Standards Manual is an affordable solution that should suffice, especially for new registrations and small management teams. You can upgrade to the more advanced versions later, without feeling you invested an unnecessary amount before you were ready.
The PROFESSIONAL Edition is more suitable for "complex" providers such as GP Practices, Dentists, and other services involving invasive procedures. This edition includes "Quality Control" sections for monitoring activity and meetings, which are more appropriate for management teams.

Quality Standards Manual
With the STANDARD Edition, you get a Governance Framework, which guides you on what you should have in place; records when and how often you review this; and that the necessary systems are in place. It does not include Quality Control and continuous improvement sections available in the PROFESSIONAL Edition.
The Professional Standards Passport is suitable for organisations of any size from single-handed to multi-branch.
