CQC were recently asked to confirm the process for notifying them of the death of a person using a service.

You must notify CQC if the person’s death:

  • took place while a regulated activity was being provided; or
  • may have been a result of the regulated activity or how it was provided.


You must notify CQC of the death without delay. Further information can be found on their website.

All information and guidance for providers can be found within the Adult social care guidance section of the CQC website.
