The Law Commission draft bill

Working on reviewing the legislation around healthcare regulation

The Secretary of State for Health referred the issue of reviewing the complex and outdated legislation governing the healthcare professional regulators to the Law Commission in September 2010. We have been working with the Law Commission, other professional healthcare regulators and the Department of Health to develop proposals for better legislation. Read our position statement to find out more.

We call on all political parties to commit to urgent and substantial change of the overarching regulation of the professional healthcare regulators as soon as possible in the next parliament.
