We’ve published a COVID-19 position statement, which outlines the actions we’ve taken in response to the pandemic and our approach to the challenges we’re continuing to face. It also sets out how we’ll adapt our work as COVID-19 restrictions change.

The publication of the report following our inspection of maternity services at Wrexham Maelor Hospital marks a waypoint in our National Review of Maternity Services in Wales.

We have decided that we are now able to begin the publication of completed inspection reports of NHS healthcare settings.

Healthcare inspectors Emma Scott and Lauren Young, both of whom are registered nurses, have been working in front-line NHS roles during the COVID-19 outbreak, while continuing to work for HIW.

This is a joint statement, shared with providers of health and social care, from Gillian Baranski, Chief Inspector, Care Inspectorate Wales and Alun Jones, Interim Chief Executive, Healthcare Inspectorate Wales.
