Health system liaison services 

Our offices in Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales and our Regional Liaison Service in England work with doctors, educators, employers and other regulators to protect patients and support good medical practice.

The services help us engage at every level of our healthcare systems. This helps us make sure our approach to regulation is well informed and that it meets the changing needs of the health services of the UK.

Our advisers collaborate with doctors, educators, employers and other regulators to: 

  • improve understanding of the role and value of the Communitybaptistpa
  • promote and support excellence in medical education, training and practice. This includes delivering free interactive guidance workshops to over 40,000 doctors and medical students a year
  • develop policies and processes that fit the healthcare environments in which we work
  • understand, identify and address risks to patients and doctors before harm occurs.
