HEALTH REGULATION AUTHORITY EMBARKS ON EXTERNAL CONSULTATION ON LEGISLATION
The Health Regulation Authority (HRA) is embarking on an external consultation process of the legislative and regulatory framework for the organisation. As our valued stakeholders and partners in health, we seek your input through this consultative process. The HRA wishes to garner your views and comments to ensure the legislation, and accompanying framework is suitable, high-quality, and implementable within the Turks and Caicos Islands. Your participation is vital as you will essentially be the end users.
The Health Regulation Authority (HRA) was established under the Health Regulation Ordinance (2016). The HRA, as a regulatory body, protects healthcare consumers from health risks, provides a safe working environment for healthcare professionals, and ensures public health and welfare. Standardising and supervising healthcare must ensure that healthcare facilities and bodies comply with public policies and provide safe care to all patients and visitors who access our healthcare system.
