The UK's Department of Health has announced a "significant milestone" in its healthcare safety and quality programme, with the completion of the reforms of the UK's seven medical regulatory bodies. The reforms, which affect the regulation of professionals covered by the general medical, optical, osteopathic, nursing/midwifery, dental, chiropractic and health professions councils, are set out in the white paper Trust, Assurance and Safety, and feature the creation of fully-appointed "board-like" structures that "will enhance the ability of the regulators to act strategically".
