Why does health and care regulation need to be reformed?
The current framework for the regulation of health and care professionals in the UK is outdated and needs to modernise to ensure it can protect the public today and in the future. The Government consulted on reforming professional regulation (the deadline for responses was 23 January 2018). We produced our new publication Right-touch reform to help influence the debate and put forward proposals for future development and improvement. It provides context of the current regulatory landscape as well as providing in-depth analyses of what needs to change to make healthcare regulation fit for purpose. Read what we said in our response.
