Professional Standards Authority has now published its 2018/19 Annual Report.

The report was laid before Parliament on 27 June 2019 and fulfils PSA’s duty to report to Parliament on their own performance; and the performance of the health and care professional regulators and accredited registers PSA oversee.

The report highlights key areas of PSA’s work in 2018/19, including:

  • Scrutinising the regulators’ final fitness to practise determinations and appealing any final decisions believed to be insufficient to protect the public
  • Reviewing the performance of the nine health and care professional regulators
  • Oversight of the accredited registers programme and continuing efforts to increase awareness of the programme
  • The publication of lessons learned review of how the Nursing and Midwifery Council handled complaints against midwives at Furness General Hospital
  • Policy and research work including publication of two key pieces of research on duty of candour and sexual behaviours between colleagues.
