CQC head steps down

7th December 2009

Baroness Barbara Young is to step down from her post as head of England's independent health and social care regulator, the Care Quality Commission, from February.

She told ministers of her decision to leave the role towards the end of November saying she had pointed the CQC “in the right direction” but now wanted to see others take it forward. Dame Jo Williams, former chief executive of the mental health charity Mencap, will take charge of the CQC until a permanent successor is found.
