How To Set Up A Domiciliary Care Service

Welcome to our domiciliary set-up guide! In this article, we will discuss how to set up and run a UK-based domiciliary care agency. Starting up on your own can be a daunting task. But we will make the task much easier for you. With over twenty years of experience in running, managing and owning a domiciliary homecare agency (and a nursing agency), I understand the process of registration, policies and procedures you'll need. I have contracted with government, the NHS, CCG’s and private care homes. I have turned over one million pounds of revenue a year, so rest assured you will get to know all the secrets of running a successful homecare agency. I am also able to see any pitfalls you may have when running this type of care business.

You will have to put in a lot of hard work though! You have to meet certain criteria; you will need to meet the Care Quality Commission standards, together with considerable legislative obligations. Furthermore you will need to have a considerable number of relevant policies and procedures in place in order to satisfy government regulators and inspection set out by the Care Quality Commission (CQC). If you are planning to run an health or adult social care service, providing care in individuals own homes, then you will need to register, with the Care Quality Commission. Apply as a new provider, registration normally takes 4-6 weeks. You can also get information from the Care Quality Commission website, here is the link:
