Reforming regulation - ensuring public protection: three things the government needs to get right to ensure public protection
We have published our short report on three things the government needs to get right as part of its consultation on regulatory reform. The government published its consultation on reforming regulation in mid March. This is a positive step to improving regulation and we welcome much of what is proposed. However, we have some concerns in three areas that we believe could inadvertently create a gap in public protection and reduce transparency and accountability. You can also read our short 'first look' report, or dedicated webpage or some FAQs which go into more details about the areas which give us the greatest cause for concern.
Our most recent performance reviews published are for the Nursing and Midwifery Council. You can find out more in the full report or see a summary in our two-page snapshot. We have also recently published our report for the General Optical Council - read the full report or see a summary in the snapshot.
