The Health Service Journal has reported that regulators have called for an overhaul of professional misconduct rules. Chief people officer Prerana Issar said there was an “appetite” for a common framework on handling concerns about NHS staff. This follows recommendations set by a national Advisory Group after the suicide of an Imperial College Healthcare Trust nurse. Ms Issar asks all healthcare professional and regulatory bodies to review their guidance on disciplinary procedures. NHS England is working to develop a single framework for all professional regulators when dealing with a conduct complaint.
