After national discussions a compromise has been agreed about changes to CQC registration as a result of the establishment of COVID-19 “hot hubs”. CQC are statutorily required to maintain up to date information on service delivery and were not able to waive the requirement completely. However, where hot hubs are run by a group of practices, only the provider where the hot hub is sited need contact CQC to update their Statement of Purpose (Part 3).
