New protocol for emerging concerns

Eight health and social care regulators and other bodies have signed a new agreement to help them share concerns with each other more effectively.

The emerging concerns protocol  seeks to provide a clearly defined mechanism for us to share information and intelligence that may indicate risks to users of services, their carers, families or professionals.

The following organisations have signed the protocol:

  • Care Quality Commission
  • General Medical Council
  • General Pharmaceutical Council
  • Health and Care Professions Council
  • Health Education England
  • Local Government and Social Care Ombudsman
  • Nursing and Midwifery Council
  • Parliamentary and Health Service Ombudsman
