This guest blog from Professor Deborah Bowman, the academic lead for the Authority's 2019 Academic Conference, introduces the question ‘what is it to be a good regulator?’
There is no doubt that the UK is facing numerous public health challenges - in this blog, we look at how the Accredited Registers programme can play a key role in supporting public health and why they still remain an 'untapped resource'
In our third (and final) blog looking at fitness to practise – we go from the evolutionary approach to the revolutionary – if we could design the fitness to practise process from scratch: what would it look like?
The second in our series of blogs on fitness to practise focuses on what changes could be introduced without the need for substantial legislative change or radical regulatory reform.
We've all seen articles about doctors/nurses being 'struck off' and the fitness to practise process even made a recent appearance on prime-time ITV in its crime drama 'Unforgotten', but what exactly is fitness to practise and why is reforming it long overdue?
