Plan to reduce health and care red tape burden

Minister for Health Lord Prior is setting up the burden reduction challenge panel in partnership with NHS Providers, NHS Confederation and Care England.

The panel will look at evidence of both the burdens and benefits of current NHS and social care regulatory activity and will then challenge their use and necessity. Regulatory activity judged to be unnecessary by the panel and relevant officials will be amended or removed.

The organisations will engage health professionals to provide evidence that will feed into the panel. The panel’s first session will focus on data and information requests, at both national and local level.
