Assessment of the Health and Social Care Act 2008

21 May 2013


This memorandum to the House of Commons Health Select Committee considers whether the Health and Social Care Act 2008 met its objectives, which were to:

• establish the Care Quality Commission
• change arrangements for regulation of health professionals and of the health and social care workforce
• update the Public Health (Control of Disease) Act 1984
• create the Health in Pregnancy Grant
• make miscellaneous other changes in relation to health and social care

It is government policy that the department responsible for an Act of Parliament should submit a memorandum on the Act to the relevant select committee within 5 years of Royal Assent.
