GOsC meets all Standards of Good Regulation for thirteenth year running
22 June 2023
The General Osteopathic Council has met all the PSA’s Standards of Good Regulation for the thirteenth year in succession; continuing our proud record of passing all standards each year.
The Professional Standards Authority for Health and Social Care (PSA) oversees the performance of ten health and social care regulators and, in its latest annual performance review, has found that the GOsC has met all Standards of Good Regulation for the thirteenth year running.
Chair of Council, Dr Bill Gunnyeon, said: ‘I warmly welcome the report from the PSA which provides independent assurance that the GOsC continues to be a highly effective regulator, fulfilling its role of protecting patients and the public. The Council and the GOsC, do not take this continued success for granted and we will continually strive to improve what we do and how we do it. This drive for improvement will be a key feature of our next Strategic Plan which we will shortly be consulting on.'
Chief Executive and Registrar, Matthew Redford, commented: ‘I am delighted that, once again, the GOsC has passed all Standards of Good Regulation as determined by the PSA. We take great pride in our continued high-performance and I want to offer my congratulations to everyone at GOsC for their work and to thank colleagues within the governance structure for their scrutiny and support as we deliver our statutory responsibilities.’
The PSA has 18 Standards of Good Regulation which cover the core functions of the regulator and include a focus on equality, diversity and inclusion; ensuring that relevant learning from one part of the business is applied to others; and that the regulator consults with all relevant stakeholders.
