Professional Standards Authority for Health and Social Care Annual Report and Accounts and Performance Review Report 2012-13

Volume II: Performance Review Report 2012-13

The purpose of professional regulators is to protect patients, service users and the public, to uphold the standards of their profession and to ensure public confidence in regulation. The Professional Standards Authority oversees the professional regulators and reports annually on their performance. We share with the regulators a commitment to the public interest and effective regulation.

This report contains both an overview of general findings from our performance review of the regulators we oversee and our individual detailed reports about the performance of each of the regulators against the Standards of Good Regulation. The performance review took place between September 2012 and May 2013 and draws primarily on evidence of performance during the 2012/13 financial year.
