This presentation explores the context of current changes in the regulation of health and social care research. It notes that the existing framework developed as a response to malfeasance in the conduct of research identified in a series of scandals that led to regulatory intervention.In the context of financial recession the 'scandal' that has driven reform is more one of non-feasance' and (perceived) bureaucracy that is disproportionate to both risks and public expectations. The consultation on amendments to the NHS Constitution is assessing the public's views and can be seen as a form of social contract on which the new research governance structures should build. The new Health Research Authority, chaired by the speaker, seeks to promote and protect the interests of patients, participants and the general public through a series of projects to streamline governance procedures.
