Changes at the top for CQC

Topics covered: CQC

Sir David Behan has announced his intention to step down as the Chief Executive of the CQC. He will continue his role up until summer 2018, to allow sufficient time for the Board to appoint his successor. Having worked in health and social care for over 40 years and specifically six years at the CQC, he has said:

“It’s been an immense privilege to serve the public by leading CQC, and I am incredibly proud of what we have achieved. We’ve inspected every hospital, adult social care provider and GP practice in the country – over 28,000 services and providers – and in the process developed a baseline on quality that is unique anywhere in the world. Our annual State of Care publication is recognised as an authoritative overview of the quality of England’s health and care services, and the National Audit Office recently recognised the progress we have made as an organisation. I now feel it’s time to move on, to make a contribution in a different way and to allow someone else to lead the organisation to the next stage of its development.”
