Senior staff go as CQC makes major changes
Caring Times, June 2013
Major changes have been made in the upper echelons of the Care Quality Commission, with a number of senior people leaving the organisation.
Director of finance and corporate services John Lappin announced he had a new post last year but agreed to stay on to finalise CQC’s budget for 2013/14 and deputy chief executive Jill Finney left CQC in February to take up a senior role in the private sector.
Louise Guss, director of governance and legal services, is to leave at the end of May, as is director of operations delivery Amanda Sherlock. Director of human resources Allison Beale will leave in September.
In a statement, CQC said the restructured senior management team would consist of the chief executive, chief inspectors, director of strategy, director of change and director of corporate services.
“Together with a strengthening of the board under new chairman David Prior, the changes will enable CQC to deliver its strategy for the next three years and make sure that health and care services provide people with safe, effective, compassionate, high quality care,” the statement said.
