Our second annual report published
Our report on our second year as the regulator of England’s health and adult social care services was laid before Parliament this morning.
The period covered by the report – the year to the end of March 2011 – was one which saw a changing landscape in health and social care regulation.
During the year, we moved almost 12,000 organisations running services such as care homes, care in the home agencies and private hospitals into a new system of regulation.
The scale of our regulatory work saw a huge increase as we also began work on bringing 9,000 dentists and independent ambulance services into this same system.
As well as the drive to bring all these organisations into our regulatory system, we continued our work monitoring how well NHS trusts were meeting our essential standards of quality and safety.
At the same time, our role as the quality regulator for health and social care was reinforced by new legislation and the arm’s length body review. These changes also saw proposals for us to take on new functions in the near future.
