Consultation description

The government wants your views on the draft regulations that will change the Medical Profession (Responsible Officer) Regulations 2010.

A previous consultation considered the role of the responsible officer in 3 particular areas:

  • the new structures in health
  • the new structures in public health
  • checking the language competence of doctors

This consultation summarises the responses received and, taking these into consideration, sets out the changes we intend to make in each area, including:

  • changes to reflect the changes to the NHS
  • changes in the structures for public health
  • a clarification of responsible officers functions in respect of language checking
  • details of additions to the list of designated bodies
  • changes for postgraduate trainees
