Caring Times, June 2014

The Care Quality Commission (CQC) has now appointed the full team of deputy chief inspectors for adult social care to lead their teams in the North, Central, South and London regions.

Sally Warren, current director of programmes at Public Health England, is the latest recruit to be named as CQC’s new deputy chief inspector of adult social care for London and joins previously appointed experts Debbie Westhead (North), Malcolm Bower-Brown (Central) and Adrian Hughes (South).

CQC says Sally brings a track record of driving forward radical policy improvement following a number of key leadership roles at the Department of Health, including in social care policy, leading the 2010 Spending Review for Adult Social Care, the 2012 Caring for Our Future White Paper, the new approach to paying for social care and pre legislative scrutiny of the 2013 Draft Care Bill.
Commenting on her appointment, Sally said: “I am excited to be joining Andrea and the team at CQC.”
She added: “The introduction of the new approach to inspection and regulation is a critical time for the adult social care sector and I’m looking forward to starting work with colleagues to make the vision a reality.”
Andrea Sutcliffe, chief inspector of adult social care at CQC, said: “I am delighted we now have a full team of deputy chief inspectors and I am looking forward to working with them all.

“We know how important good leadership is in adult social care services and it is equally critical for us, particularly at a time of so much change.  Adrian, Debbie, Malcolm and Sally bring a wealth and variety of experience, knowledge and skills that will be essential as we transform our approach to regulation and inspection and establish our new expert teams.”
