professional regulatory seminar with guest speaker Frances
Patterson QC - 'reforming the law on the regulation of health care
professionals', London - Tuesday 29 May
We were delighted to welcome Frances
Patterson QC as our guest speaker at our Spring seminar on
Tuesday 29 May 2012 in London. Frances is in the third of her
five years as Public Law Commissioner and is leading
the Law Commission's review of the UK law relating to the
regulation of health care professionals and, in England only, the
regulation of social workers.
Frances joined us two days before the end of the Commission's
consultation that has followed the reference from the Department of
Health and was accompanied by Tim Spencer-Lane who is a supporting
lawyer to Frances in relation to this project.
The Commission's consultation paper makes provisional proposals
that seek to simplify and modernise the law and establish a
streamlined, transparent and responsive system of regulation. It
covers issues such as registration, protected titles,
education and training, setting of standards, governance,
investigation and adjudication of fitness to practice cases
and the ongoing role of the CHRE.
This seminar provided a final chance to hear the developing
thoughts of the Commission and ask any questions of Frances and Tim
before the consultation closes on Thursday 31 May.
