What is the role of a Registered Manager?

A Registered Manager (RM) has overall responsibility for managing the business, the team within it and quality of care being delivered. They are the person appointed by the provider to manage the regulated activity for the service. At Right at Home, regulated activity means personal care for Clients.

In England, a Registered Manager will apply for registration with the regulator: the Care Quality Commission (CQC).
