Like all charities in the UK and Wales we are regulated by the Charity Commission. As a healthcare provider our practice and services are regulated by CQC [Care Quality Commission].

Registered Manager and Nominated Individual

Any organisation who provides regulated activity in England must be registered with the CQC otherwise they commit an offence.

The CQC (Registration) Regulations 2009 set out the circumstances in which you must have a Registered Manager. The Hospice is required under these circumstances to have a Registered Manager:

  • Personal Care
  • Treatment of disease, disorder or injury
  • Diagnostic and screening procedures

For a manager to be registered with the CQC they must meet specific requirements relating to registered managers.

A Registered Manager shares the legal responsibility for meeting the requirements of the relevant regulations and enactments with the provider.

Responsible or Nominated Individuals are expected to oversee all regulated activity on site and service management. Ensure the service is run well and safely. Ensure that the service is compliant with service regulations and standards.

Woking & Sam Beare Hospice's Registered Manager and Nominated Individual is our Director of Clinical Services Tammy Stracey. Click to view certification:
