This document informs the reader about the feedback received by the Department of Health on proposals to introduce a fitness test for directors of health and social care providers, and how they are responding to this feedback. It also sets out how a new fit and proper person requirement (FPPR) for providers registered with the Care Quality Commission (CQC) will be implemented.

54 responses to the consultation were received and consultation meetings were held over September 2013 with a range of providers, family carers, and people with learning disabilities. The majority of the responses to the consultation (74%) were supportive of the overall principle of introducing the FPPR.
