Department of Health Arm’s Length Bodies

Volume 624: debated on Thursday 20 April 2017

The Department of Health has completed its triennial reviews of the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority, the Human Tissue Authority and the Committee on Mutagenicity of Chemicals in Food, Consumer Products and the Environment and is today publishing the associated reports. A copy of each review report can be found online. Additionally, the review of the NHS Pay Review Body and the Review Body on Doctors’ and Dentists’ Remuneration will be subsumed within a cross-cutting review of the classification of the Department of Health’s advisory non-departmental public bodies.

Each review, which took place during 2015-16, consulted with a wide range of stakeholders and concluded that the organisations perform necessary functions effectively. The reports contain recommendations intended to support each organisation’s future performance, efficiency, and governance.
