Care regulator chair to step down

10th September 2012

Dame Jo Williams, the chair of the Care Quality Commission, has said she is to resign from her position.

She said in a statement: "It has been a demanding and complex role, and there have undoubtedly been challenges as we registered 40,000 providers and brought the entire health and social care system under one set of standards. But there is now clear evidence that our regulation is beginning to have an impact on the care that people receive, and it feels as if the organisation is moving into the next stage of its development. It has been a privilege to hold this important role but I now believe it is time to step aside and for a new Chair to lead CQC into the next stage."
