Following the departure of Healthcare Inspectorate Wales’ former Chief Executive, Dr Kate Chamberlain, in March 2020, Alun has been appointed as Interim Chief Executive.
Alun represents HIW in tripartite ‘escalation and intervention’ discussions with the Wales Audit Office and Welsh Government. This framework determines the level of escalation for NHS bodies from ‘Routine Monitoring’ through to ‘Special Measures’.
