BASW England encourages members to respond to consultation on reducing bureaucracy

New Department of Health and Social Care consultation

The Department of Health and Social Care have opened a call for evidence for their consultation: Reducing bureaucracy in the health and social care system.

Consultation description

Description taken from the gov.uk website - 

We’ll use your response alongside information we get from other places, such as meetings, interviews, research reports and academic literature, to:

  • find out the most common bureaucratic burdens experienced by staff providing care directly, as well as managerial and administrative staff, in the NHS, public health and social care sectors
  • help the government change processes, rules and regulations, including through planned reform of professional regulation, where we have existing powers to do so in the short or medium term

The call for evidence closes 11:59pm on 13 September 2020.
