What Is CQC Registration?
CQC refers to the Care Quality Commission, these guys are the independent regulator of health and social care in England. It’s their job to make sure that a business is adhering to the five key lines of enquiry. Getting registered means that your clinic goes from being just an aesthetic clinic to a credible medical and aesthetic clinic, which is regulated too!

Why Complete CQC Registration?
There are a number of reasons why we think getting CQC registered is a good idea:
Credibility When Clients Are Choosing A Provider
Everyone knows that the aesthetics industry is competitive, there are so many providers out there who all claim to offer the most impressive results. What you need is a way to actually show that you operate a great clinic. Getting CQC registered is a great way to do this, it’s there in black and white from an independent organisation that your work is as good as you say it is and that your claims are more credible as a result.
It Shows You Adhere To CQC Standards
The Health and Social Care Act 2008 is incredibly important. It’s what CQC standards are based on and, as a result, your clients are going to want to know how well you adhere to said standards. CQC registration is a great way to show that you hold yourself to exceptional standards.
Shows That Your Clinic Is Safe, Effective, Responsive, Caring and Well-Led

Clinics Are Regularly Inspected
Ok, so inspections are never exactly fun, but they are really important. Showing your potential clients that you undergo regular inspections assures them that you maintain your high standards, you don’t just pull out all the stops once every 10 years. This will give people confidence in your clinic.

You could offer the following:
- Surgical procedures
