Testimonials

I just wanted to say a big thank you for the support you are currently providing regarding the KLOE’s and my CQC Registration. Being completely honest, without your support and guidance I am not sure that I would feel confident in completing the process alone, the registration process is quite daunting! Your knowledge and expertise in this area, along with a natural ability to extract the necessary information in a really positive and relaxed manner, makes the process interesting and informative, following each session I feel that I have a much better understanding of the process and I have gained more self confidence, which is great!

It is a pleasure to work with you Tracey, you are always prepared, you go over and above that which is required of you, and you always have a smile, thank you.

Janet Taylor – Case Manager & Registered Manager at PINC Management Limited

I have been working with Virtual Administration for the past few months in order to register with CQC as a Case Management Company. The services provided are more than professional and very straight forward. Very quick and reliable. Friendly staff and most importantly committed. Basically I couldn’t be happier with the services provided.

Emese Negroiu – Registered Manager at Horton Tower 

Tracey is currently supporting me through the relative minefield of CQC registration and her support throughout has been wonderful.  She has provided essential practical support by supplying relevant paperwork for me to tweak to my individual situation, has guided me through the process and most significantly she is always available to chat things through and has kept me sane at times of feeling rather overwhelmed!
