We have now published Regulation rethought. This builds on the ideas we set out in our paper Rethinking regulation published last year. Regulation rethought sets out our proposals for a transformation of the regulation of health and care professionals. We have also published our paper on assessing the risk of harm Right-touch assurance – a methodology for assessing and assuring occupational risk of harm.
