Most recently he was commissioned by the Health Minister to examine and report upon the effectiveness of the ‘fit and proper person’ test in the NHS.  His report, co-authored with Jane Russell, is currently under government review.  He brings to his investigations huge experience of the regulatory world together with a close forensic and objective analysis of the material.
