Podcast: The changing nature of regulation in the NHS

Ella Jackson, Policy Advisor (regulation) at NHS Providers discusses the key findings of our report The changing nature of regulation in the NHS.


The report is based on a survey of trust chief executives and board level directors. This is the fourth year we have run this survey. This year we received 86 responses which represents 37% of the provider sector.

This year’s survey explores trusts’ experiences of the current regulatory approach by the regulators NHS Improvement and the Care Quality Commission (CQC). For the first time this year, we also asked trusts to tell us about their experiences of moving to local system collaboration through sustainability and transformation partnerships (STPs) and integrated care systems and the implications of local systems working for the regulatory framework.

This year’s survey also measures trends against previous years on the perception of trusts of the level of burden on them to meet the requirements of the regulators, how proportionate the ask of regulators is against the level of risk trusts face, and whether the current regulatory framework is good value for money.
