This is the third time this newsletter has been sent out under a lockdown and each time we have hoped that the situation will be better. This time it possibly is with the roll-out of the vaccine, but we hope that you are keeping well and want to again express our continuing support and gratitude for all those working in health and care - as well as other key workers - who are helping us get through this pandemic.
Since our last newsletter, the
Government has published a White Paper on a Health and Care Bill. The White Paper
proposes far-reaching changes to reform the NHS and social care, but also includes further proposals for reform of health
and care professional regulation to promote a proportionate, risk-based
approach. So we will be watching this space with interest. You can read our initial response here.
