The CQC has revealed that one in eight adult social care services does not have a Registered Manager in place.

Chief Executive David Behan has said that it was “unacceptable” and that services without a Registered Manager (RM) were more likely to be failing to meet essential standards than those with an RM in place.

He said the CQC would write to providers who have not had a RM in any of their services for a period of time to say that they are at risk of being fined up to £4,000.
