Marc Seale, Chief Executive and Registrar, The Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) said:

"We welcome the UK governments' consultation on the reform of healthcare professional regulation and would encourage stakeholders to respond with their views on the proposals and approach.

It is important to recognise that the regulatory framework has become increasingly complex and difficult to navigate at times. The delivery of health and social care has also changed. A more flexible and responsive model of professional healthcare regulation is needed in order to deliver effective public protection which continues to be fit for purpose.

It is crucial that whatever comes out of this important consultation helps to simplify regulation and enable healthcare regulators to become more responsive to changes in the sector."
