Briefing: The fit and proper person test

01 / 12 / 2014

This briefing provides an update on the requirements placed on NHS provider organisations as of 27 November 2014 to ensure director level appointments meet the ‘fit and proper persons test’ which has been recently integrated into CQC’s registration requirements, and falls within the purview of their regulatory and inspection approach.

Produced by the NHS Confederation, NHS Employers organisation and NHS Providers (formerly known as the Foundation Trust Network), the briefing provides a summary of the regulations themselves, as well as a practical toolkit to support provider boards in assuring themselves that they have followed a robust and due process with regards to the fit and proper persons test.
