Revisions to the standards of proficiency

Updated standards for each of the 15 professions we regulate came into effect on 1 September 2023

We keep our standards under continual review, to look at how they are working and check whether they continue to reflect current practice. We conduct a periodic review of the standards every five years.

The most recent updates for each profession came into effect on 1 Setpember 2023, and were formed after extensive consultation with a range of stakeholders.

In line with feedback to our public consultation, the changes reflect the extent of developments in practice for each profession, and reflect the reality of practising in today's healthcare landscape.
