The article comments on the statutory duty of Great Britain Healthcare Commission to encourage improvement in the provision of health care in the country. Ministers are reviewing the regulation of health and social care, including the role of the commission. But to contrast regulation with improvement creates a false antithesis. Regulation based on standards is inextricably connected to improvement.
