Our partnerships with other organisations

Page last updated: 6 April 2023

We work closely with other organisations so that we can encourage best practice and spot and stamp out bad practice together.

Together, we:

  • share information about services
  • improve how care is overseen
  • make the most use of our joint resources and activities
  • reduce duplication

Joint working agreements

Our formal agreements with other organisations describe how we regulate effectively in partnership. Our agreements set out what we hope to achieve, how we share information and how we evaluate success.

Care in the criminal justice system

We work with other inspectorates to monitor the quality of health and care within secure settings.

Children's services

We work with Ofsted and other inspectorates to inspect registered health services for children.

Working with local groups

We work with others to make sure we hear the views and opinions of people who use services.

'Tell us about your care' partnerships

We work with national charities to gather feedback from people about their experiences of care.
