Our performance reviews

The performance review is our check on how well the regulators have been protecting the public and promoting confidence in health and care professionals and themselves. We publish a report about each regulator every year as well as an overview report, once a year. Our performance review is important because:

  • It tells everyone how well the regulators are doing

  • It helps the regulators improve, as we identify strengths and things to improve and recommend changes.

How do we carry out our reviews?

Read our short guide which provides an overview of our review process. Basically, over 12 months, we gather evidence for each regulator to see if they have met our Standards of Good Regulation. The Standards describe the outcomes we expect regulators to achieve for their four regulatory functions: guidance and standards, education and training, registration, and fitness to practise, as well as a set of general standards.

You can find out more about the Standards of Good Regulation as well as the list of the factors we will consider and the evidence we will look at as part of our review process. You can also read our latest reports opposite or find all of them in our performance review reports. If you have any feedback about your experiences of contacting a regulator, you can share them with us. Find out  more here.
