Finding the balance: regulation of NHS Providers

This report outlines the results of an NHS Providers member survey on the regulatory regime, carried out in September 2014. It explores the burden of regulation experienced by NHS foundation trusts and trusts and considers how this burden may be impacting on their ability to drive improvement and service change.

The regulation of NHS providers is complex and involves multiple organisations with overlapping responsibilities. It is essential that we understand the regulatory environment our members are operating in, the potential benefits of regulation for patients and providers, and the burden it can place on NHS providers. This enables us to work with the regulators and statutory bodies to shape the current and future regulatory framework to ensure it allows the sector to lead its own improvement and pursue new models of care.
