This consultation is as of a result of a previous consultation which committed to reviewing the current situation around regulated and unregulated healthcare professionals.

This consultation seeks views on:
• the proposed criteria to make decisions on which professions should be regulated
• whether there are regulated professions that no longer require statutory regulation
• whether there are unregulated professions that should be brought into statutory regulation

The consultation closes on 31 March 2022, the Government information page can be accessed here.
