Consultation response: the future regulation of health and adult social care in England

This paper responds to the Department of Health consultation on the framework for the registration of health and adult social care providers.

We broadly welcome proposals for a single set of registration requirements in the context of a range of non-NHS providers offering care to NHS-funded patients and some specialist services being moved to community settings. However, we believe there needs to be a clearer definition of what constitutes a 'service'.
