Our 2030 vision

Our vision is rooted in the people we work with and for. We will be an effective, relevant and compassionate regulator for patients, the public and professionals, and as an employer.

We will foster a culture of equality, diversity and inclusion in everything we do as a regulator and employer.

We will work to deliver wider health system goals by working in partnership with others. Evidence will drive our decisions.

We will be a multiprofessional regulator focusing on supporting professionals in the places they work. This requires unified action from us all – regulators, employers and educators.

The way we work

Our values help us to make our strategy a reality. We’ll foster a culture of collaboration, compassion and candour. And equality, diversity and inclusion will play an integral part of our work as a regulator, and as an employer.
