GOsC meets all Standards of Good Regulation for tenth year running
3 July 2020
The General Osteopathic Council has met all the PSA’s Standards of Good Regulation for the tenth year in succession; the only health and care regulator with that record.
In its latest annual performance review, the Professional Standards Authority for Health and Social Care (PSA), has found that the GOsC has continued to meet all of its Standards of Good Regulation for the tenth year running.
Each year the PSA reviews all of the statutory health and social care regulators to assess whether they are meeting its Standards of Good Regulation.
The Standards of Good Regulation are designed to ensure that regulators are protecting the public and promoting confidence in health and care professionals. They cover the regulators’ core functions:
- setting and promoting guidance and standards for the profession;
- setting standards for and quality assuring the provision of education and training;
- maintaining a register of professionals,
- and taking action where a professional’s fitness to practise may be impaired.
Chair of Council, Dr Bill Gunnyeon, said: ‘I am delighted by the publication of the PSA Performance Review, which once again demonstrates to the public, to osteopaths and to our stakeholders, that we are a credible, high-performing regulator. The report highlights our collaborative and innovative approach to regulation and we fully intend to further build on our success in the coming years.’
Chief Executive and Registrar, Matthew Redford, commented: ‘For the tenth year in succession the GOsC has met all of the Standards of Good Regulation. This is very much a collective effort and everyone involved in the work of the GOsC should take great pride in this achievement.’
