Choose your carer is not registered with the Quality Care Commission. Choose your carer is an introductory agency which introduces carers and those seeking care. According to regulatory guidelines published by the Care Quality Commission, “introductory agencies” who impose no control over ongoing care provision, but introduce carers and provide other ancillary services to facilitate a carer/care seeker relationship, have no statutory requirement to register with the CQC.
This means that Choose your carer is unable to control the delivery of the care by the carer, including changes to visits, back up rotas and monitoring of individual carer performance. Choose your carer does however, provide a service that allows all those receiving care the ability to monitor all carers provision of care and provide feedback to carer. Self-employed care workers who provide personal care also have no requirement to be registered with the CQC providing the services offered do not extend beyond personal care.
