Health and Social Care Act 2012

Section 292 – Requirement for Secretary of State to approve remuneration policy etc.

1506.This section amends Schedule 1 to the Health and Social Care Act 2008, with the effect that the CQC must obtain the approval of the Secretary of State of its pay and remuneration policy before making any determinations about payments to staff it employs. This would make the approach for the CQC consistent with that for other arm’s-length bodies established by this Act (see Parts 8 and 9 regarding NICE and the Information Centre).
