Abstract

The Professional Statutory and Regulatory Bodies (PRSBs) that govern health and social care professions within the UK, set clear expectations with regard to the fitness to practise of registrants, which are mirrored in their respective training programmes. The Equality Act (2010) poses a challenge to PRSBs, educators and employers to ensure that people are not excluded from the professions on the basis of disability. This project, funded by the Yorkshire and Humber NHS (Y&HNHS) took a mixed methods approach to exploring the ways in which a balance can be found between these tensions.
