I know I have asked previously about the VRCT, but here's another.
Has anybody read a document "Enabling Excellence - Autonomy and Accountability for Healthcare Workers, Social Workers and Social Care Workers".
This document was presented to parliment by the secretary of state for health in February 2011.
People should take a look at page 9, point 1.15, which states:
"For Groups of staff that are currently unregulated, the first response will be not to impose national compulsory regulation, but to enable employers to take local repsonsibilty for the quality of the staff that they employ and to give a stronger voice to individual workers to speak up when they have concerns."
