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 the performance review?

Over 12 months, we gather evidence for each regulator to help us 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

  • Fitness to practise.
