Speakers include

Professor Tim Briggs, Chair, GIRFT and National Director for Clinical Improvement, NHS England
Alan Clamp, Chief Executive, Professional Standards Authority
Professor Sheona MacLeod, Deputy Medical Director for Education Reform, Health Education England

and John Barwick, Health and Care Professionals Council; Denise Chaffer, NHS Resolution; Dr Clea Harmer, Sands; Dr Robert Hendry, Medical Protection Society; Matthew Lee, MDU; Kathryn Sheridan, Kingsley Napley; Clare Strickland, Nursing and Midwifery Council; Dr Jenny Vaughan, The Doctors Association; and Peter Walsh, Action Against Medical Accidents and others

It focuses on the next steps for professional healthcare regulation, as the Department of Health and Social Care consults on proposals for reforming and modernising the framework.

Delegates will discuss proposals in the Government’s Health and Social Care White Paper for new powers around professional regulation and the themes surrounding the DHSC Regulating healthcare professionals, protecting the public consultation – such as:

• the possible removal of professions from regulation
• opening up options for streamlining and reducing regulatory duplication
• inclusion of senior managers and leaders within the scope of future regulation
• introducing flexibility into the governance framework to support changing needs
• understanding the priorities for education and training, and improving patient safety

The conference will look at these proposals, and wider measures that can be taken to tackle inefficiencies in the regulatory system, as well as priorities for reform in the context of the regulatory response to the pandemic.

Key areas for discussion:

• priorities for regulatory system reform – achieving the efficiencies and adaptability required, and its wider role in Government efforts to improve efficiency and integration within health and care
• assessing how regulation responded to the pandemic – the key lessons learned, and how the pandemic has shaped the future regulatory landscape
• how regulatory processes can keep pace with developments and challenges around the workforce, wellbeing, patient safety, education and training, and leadership accountability

The conference will be an opportunity for stakeholders to consider the issues alongside key policy officials – including those who have already booked on to attend from the Care Quality Commission; the Department of Health, NI; the Department of Health (ROI); the DHSC; the Government Legal Department; the HSE; the House of Commons Health and Social Care Committee; The Scottish Government; and the States of Guernsey.
