We help to protect the public by improving the regulation and registration of people who work in health and care by:
We apply the principles
of right-touch regulation to everything we do. Find out more
We commissioned a team from Cardiff University to undertake a review of research into health and care professional regulation since 2011
We have published our annual report for 2019/20 - produced and published under different and difficult circumstances - it highlights the need for continued cooperation and collaboration for those working in the the health and care sector and welcomes reform of regulation
We cannot investigate individual complaints about regulators but, In this blog we explain how we can use concerns and complaints shared with us to feed into our performance reviews and how this can help others
Statutory regulators responded to the pandemic in different ways: adapting quickly to create temporary registers to boost the workforce, or advising their registrants on the need too practise from a safe distance

We oversee the 10 statutory bodies that regulate health and care professionals. We review their performance to see how they are protecting the public.
We also scrutinise their decisions about whether people on their registers are fit to practise and can appeal these decisions if we believe they are insufficient to protect the public.
We set standards for organisations holding voluntary registers for people working in unregulated health and care occupations and accredit those organisations that meet our standards.
The programme helps people who are seeking treatments that may not be covered by regulated professions to opt for a lower risk option and make an informed choice.
We want to explain and explore regulation – we encourage improvement by sharing good practice and knowledge, conducting research and introducing new ideas, including our concept of right-touch regulation.
We also monitor policy developments and provide advice to governments and others on matters relating to people working in health and care.
