In December 2019, we took part in a Joint Inspection of Child Protection Arrangements (JICPA) in Newport. The joint inspection was the first pilot inspection in Wales involving five inspectorates reviewing child protection arrangements.
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.
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.
Following the departure of former Chief Executive, Dr Kate Chamberlain, last month Alun Jones was appointed interim Chief Executive of Healthcare Inspectorate Wales (HIW) for a period of 6 months with immediate effect.
