It is the approach that we encourage the health professional regulators to work towards.
The Authority promotes the health and well-being of users of health and social care services in the regulation of health and care professionals.
We set standards for organisations that hold voluntary registers for people working in a variety of health and social care occupations.
Our Standards describe the behaviour and competencies expected of NHS leaders in England.
The Authority is responsible for overseeing the UK’s 9 health and care professional regulatory bodies.
Selecting a practitioner through our directory of accredited voluntary registers provides confidence, choice, protection and quality.
The Performance Review is our annual check on how effective the regulators have been in protecting the public and promoting confidence in health and care professionals and themselves.
