We oversee the 10 statutory bodies that regulate health and care professionals. We review their performance to see how they are protecting the public.
We also scrutinise their decisions about whether people on their registers are fit to practise and can appeal these decisions if we believe they are insufficient to protect the public.
We set standards for organisations holding voluntary registers for people working in unregulated health and care occupations and accredit those organisations that meet our standards.
The programme helps people who are seeking treatments that may not be covered by regulated professions to opt for a lower risk option and make an informed choice.
We want to explain and explore regulation – we encourage improvement by sharing good practice and knowledge, conducting research and introducing new ideas, including our concept of right-touch regulation.
We also monitor policy developments and provide advice to governments and others on matters relating to people working in health and care.
