The way that health and social care is delivered is changing, and we want to develop our approach to respond to emerging new care models.
We've also now carried out a comprehensive inspection of every NHS trust in England. We propose to use this understanding together with improved systems for gathering intelligence to move towards more targeted inspections for NHS trusts.
Alongside this consultation, we are consulting jointly with NHS Improvement on our approach to leadership and use of resources in NHS trusts.
These plans reflect the priorities we set out in our five year strategy for a more targeted, responsive and collaborative approach.
We'll publish a second consultation in Spring 2017, which will focus on how we regulate adult social care and primary medical services.
What this consultation covers
We're seeking views on:
principles for how we'll regulate new models of care and complex providers
changes to our assessment frameworks across all sectors to reduce complexity and create more consistency
how we'll register services for people with learning disabilities
the way we'll regulate NHS trusts and foundation trusts from April 2017 – including how we might change our approach to rating them.
