Industry PR for Care Inspectorate.
The Care Inspectorate has announced that it is planning to appoint three senior officers who will play a major role in the future operation of the organisation: a Director of Inspection, and two Depute Directors.
The Director of Inspection will take charge of overseeing 10,000 of the Care Inspectorate’s inspections, and the two depute directors will report to the director of inspection and will have individual operational management responsibilities to ensure the strategic direction is delivered in operational terms across different services for children, young people and adults.
The chief executive of the Care Inspectorate, Annette Bruton said: “After evaluation of our own staff and key partners and stakeholders, we believe the time is right to realign our structure to better serve the purposes of the Care Inspectorate and to move us onto the next stage of development.
“This is a very important time for us as we further develop our expertise, our capacity for improvement and our focus on providing the best assurance and support that we can.
“Being in a position to create these new posts will allow us to become more innovative and build new leadership at all levels in the organisation to ensure we can deliver the highest quality of care for children, young people and adults.”
The Care Inspectorate monitors the quality of care people receive at care services taking into account the National Care Standards and identifies poor practice and makes sure services take action to improve.
