Registration Policy and Guidance published

The Care Inspectorate is publishing two new documents to clarify when a separate registration is needed rather than a variation or notification.

The Policy on Dispersed Services and Peripatetic Management sets out the Care Inspectorate’s criteria for assessing whether one registration can cover multiple sites and whether more than one registered service can share a manager.

The guidance on Variations, notifications of changes and new registrations – Housing Support and Care at Home services complements this policy.  It covers changes to housing support and care at home services, including when providers inform the Care Inspectorate of an increase in staffing or the configuration of their service.

Both documents have been produced by the Care Inspectorate’s national registration team for providers, applicants and commissioners, as well as Care Inspectorate staff.  Any enquiries can be directed to:
