Four-layer model of medical regulation
1. The most effective protection against poor practice is the individual practitioner.
2. Practitioners’ peers and colleagues should provide assurances, with everyone working together to ensure that each other’s care is safe, effective and respectful.
3. That culture of care in the team should in turn be embedded and sustained by effective leadership, management and clinical governance in the organisation.
4. The professional regulatory bodies and the bodies that regulate providers of health and social care services provide a national framework of assurance.
