This document is the Government’s formal response to the November 2006 consultation document The future regulation of health and adult social care in England.  The consultation ran from November 2006 to February 2007.  Over 100 written responses from a wide variety of stakeholders were received.  Workshops and open forums were also held to consider the document.

The consultation response:

  • reaffirms the Government’s vision for regulation
  • summarises the main themes we heard in response to the consultation
  • outlines the organisational roles and responsibilities for each of the seven regulatory functions identified by the consultation document, and
  • reinforces the Government’s commitment to establish a new integrated health and adult social care regulator by outlining the roles and responsibilities for the new regulator, the Care Quality Commission.
