New CQC care home chief announced

The Care Quality Commission (CQC) has appointed Kate Terroni as chief inspector of adult social care (ASC).

Terroni is due to start the role in May, taking over from Debbie Westhead, the interim chief inspector since Andrea Sutcliffe’s departure in December last year.

Terroni, a registered social worker, is currently director of adult social care at Oxfordshire County Council. Terroni is also co-chair of the ADASS (Association of Directors of Adult Social Services) workforce network.
Terroni said: “This is an incredibly important time for adult social care, awaiting the Green paper, while at the same time encouraging the delivery of high quality care in a challenging environment. I am passionate… that we regulate in a way which encourages services to integrate around the individual.”
