COVID-19

During the Covid-19 pandemic - keeping our staff safe, focusing on our public protection role, and keeping our stakeholders and the public reassured are our main objectives. Though not quite business as usual, we have all the systems and processes in place to make sure we can continue in our public protection role, as well as carry out our usual operational functions remotely. Find out more about how we are approaching our work during the pandemic or find out more about our working arrangements and how to get in touch with us. We have also published guidance for regulators on virtual fitness to practise hearings - you can read it here.


We have now published our annual report and accounts for 2019/20. You can read the full report, a snapshot summary or an infographic with key statistics for the year. 

Our most recent performance review published is for the General Pharmaceutical Council. You can find out  more in the full report or see a summary in our two-page snapshot.
