Individual organisations should have in place their own clinical governance and ensure their clinical practices are in line with any national guidelines. It is the role of the Care Quality Commission to monitor, inspect and regulate healthcare services to make sure they meet fundamental standards of quality and safety.

Healthcare professional regulators, including the General Medical Council and the Nursing and Midwifery Council, are responsible for assuring the fitness to practise of healthcare professionals, and can take action against professionals who do not meet the standards for professional conduct set by the regulators.
