Promoting professionalism, reforming regulation consultation

The Government has today published its response to the Promoting professionalism, reforming regulation consultation


Mary Chapman, Chair of the General Chiropractic Council, , said:


‘We welcome the Government’s much-awaited response to the consultation on the reform of regulation in healthcare. We have long been frustrated by the restrictions placed on us by dated and inflexible legislation. The changes anticipated mean that we will be able to act more quickly and responsively in protecting patients and the public. We look forward to working openly and transparently with Government, regulatory partners, patients, and registrants together with their professional bodies in doing so. We also note that any change to the number of regulatory bodies is subject to further consideration and consultation by Government. Our response to any proposals will be informed by patients and their best interests.’
