Paul Snell has been appointed as chief inspector for the Commission for Social Care Inspection (CSCI), following the appointment of David Behan, the Commission’s former chief inspector, as director general for social care at the Department of Health. Prior to this latest appointment, Mr Snell had been the CSCI’s director of inspection, regulation and review. Before joining the CSCI he was director of social services at Nottingham City Council. “I am pleased and privileged to have the opportunity to lead the Commission for Social Care Inspection, which has become a well-established and respected organisation under David Behan’s leadership,” said Mr Snell. “I want to continue to focus above all on the experiences of people who use social care services. I also want to support our staff to ensure that CSCI continues to deliver its ambitious programme of work and to manage effectively the transitions facing CSCI in the next two years.”
