Westminster Health Forum

Next steps for professional healthcare regulation reform

February 2019

This conference was a timely opportunity to discuss the key issues for professional healthcare regulation reform in the UK - looking at standards, patient safety and the next steps for policy.

It was timed ahead of the Government’s expected response to Promoting professionalism, reforming regulation consultation, which considered reforming the current regulatory system for healthcare professionals in the UK.

Attendees discussed options raised in the consultation for reducing the number of regulatory bodies and for designing a more responsive model of professional regulation.

Delegates also assessed the impact of service redesign on professional healthcare regulation, following the commitment to roll out Integrated Care Systems across England by 2021 in the NHS Long Term Plan - as well as the key issues for embedding education and training within the ten-year national patient safety strategy.

Shortly after every Westminster Health Forum seminar, a briefing document is produced. This is distributed to all delegates on the day as well as to our policymaker contacts in government, and to stakeholders more widely.

A seminar publication provides a timely record of proceedings, and acts as a guide to the latest thinking on current policy issues for those unable to be at the event.
