The Care Quality Commission (CQC) is the independent regulator of health and adult social care in England, making sure its health and social care services provide people with safe, effective, compassionate, and high-quality care, as well as continually encouraging services to improve.

Over the past five years, the CQC has radically transformed the way that it works, resulting in greater confidence in the organisation and its findings.

In addition, the CQC must shape a response to the new and exciting networks and collaborative models that are evolving within primary care.

The Chief Inspector of Primary Medical Services and Integrated Care leads one of the CQC’s three inspection directorates, with overall responsibility for regulating general medical practice, dental practice, prisons and criminal justice, defence medical services, child safeguarding, medicines management, GP out-of-hours services and 111.

As a senior leader in the organisation and member of the CQC Board, the new Chief Inspector will also contribute to the CQC’s overall strategy, direction and the effective running of the organisation to ensure the CQC’s model meets the needs of a rapidly changing health and social care system.

This is a demanding, high-profile, public-facing, and politically sensitive role. You will be a figurehead for the primary care profession; setting and enforcing national standards of care and securing the trust of the public in the activities, judgements and effectiveness of the CQC. The new Chief Inspector will have extensive experience of primary care and bring the stature and understanding to be credible within the profession, and able to work at a national level. A gifted leader and communicator, you will need to build collaborative relationships with other systems leaders, such as NHS England, NHS Improvement, Health and Social Care providers, professional bodies and the Local Government Association.

This is an exciting time to join the CQC; the organisation is clear on its future strategy for 2021 and is looking to build on the strong reputation that it has developed. If this sounds exciting to you, we would like to hear from you.
