NCF responds to Sir David Behan’s decision to step down

15 January 2018

Following Sir David Behan’s announcement of his decision to step down as CEO of the care quality commission, NCF executive director, Vic Rayner responds:

“Sir David Behan has made an outstanding contribution to social care through his leadership of CQC over the last six years. His knowledge and understanding of adult social care and particularly from the perspective of people who use services has shaped and informed his leadership of the regulators responsibility across both social care and health.”

In response to the intention to recruit a replacement for Sir David, Vic Rayner has the following message for the CQC board:

“It is critical that the new leadership of CQC comes with a solid understanding of both social care and health. The value of the regulator understanding the potential of integrated systems was recognised in their local systems reviews of social care and health systems. Sir David has recognised this important role and his knowledge and experience of both elements of the system has been instrumental in shaping CQCs understanding of what good integrated provision should both look like and crucially deliver.”
