There are three main areas to Professional Standards Authority's work:
- Reviewing the work of the regulators of health and care professionals
- Accrediting organisations that register health and care practitioners in unregulated occupations
- Giving policy advice to Ministers and others and encouraging research to improve regulation.
They apply the principles of Right-touch regulation to everything they do.
They assess organisations that register health and social care practitioners who are not regulated by law so that you can choose a practitioner to meet your needs with confidence.
