Health Professions: Regulation

Volume 462: debated on Wednesday 11 July 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Health if she will request the UK professional healthcare regulators to publish their recent research on the public’s access to professional registers. (146203)

I understand that the Joint Regulators Public and Patient Involvement (PPI) group commissioned, on behalf of the healthcare professional regulatory bodies, a formal piece of research entitled “Making Registers More Usable”. The regulatory bodies are using the report’s findings to inform the ongoing review and development of the registers. I understand that they expect to make the report available in due course, but no final decision has yet been taken.
