About Us

Hello and welcome, I founded Healthcare Regulation UK in 2010 (as CQCS Ltd) following a lengthy career in health and care regulation.

I am a nonpractising barrister and registered nurse specialising in regulation from a healthcare practitioner perspective. Please take a look at my LinkedIn profile.

The consultancy has since established itself as a leading provider of regulatory consultancy support to both the NHS and independent healthcare sector. Our track record is unparalleled, so please take a moment to review our client portfolio and the outcomes achieved using our methodology.

Our Business Offer

Unlike many management consultancies claiming to offer a similar service, our USP is a thorough understanding of healthcare regulatory law and its interpretation and application. In house audits, templates and software solutions have their place, but a theoretical and practise-based knowledge of the regulations is paramount.

We offer a number of support packages, but can help with any regulatory need you may have. Our approach is bespoke in that our methodology will be adapted to the requirements of your particular organisation or service type. We have extensive experience of working with a wide range of providers across the UK healthcare economy. Check out our client portfolio.

We use a highly experienced team of associates to deliver the kind of support your organisation or service requires. This includes, but not exclusively, strategic level regulatory knowledge and experience, inspection practitioners (NHS, GP, independent and social care), doctors, consultant surgeons, pharmacists, patient experience, complaints expertise, business transformation and service improvement, programme and project management, and legal advice (via our Solicitors Regulation Authority and Bar Standards Board registered lawyer associates). The consultancy is the product of an innovative collaboration with co-founder and fellow director Steve Carney. Steve is a former ombudsman and regulator, and lectures in law at LJMU. Steve’s profile is also available at LinkedIn.

Please contact us today to discuss your needs and how we can help.
