Former council chief named CQC boss

  • Comment

A former chief executive of Windsor & Maidenhead RBC has been named in the same post at the Care Quality Commission.

Ian Trenholm, who held Windsor & Maidenhead’s top role from 2008-2012, will take over from Sir David Behan in July, having been appointed by the non-executive members of the CQC board following open competition.

Mr Trenholm has been chief executive of NHS Blood and Transport since 2014 and has also formerly worked in the police service, as chief operating officer at the Department of Environment, Food & Rural Affairs.

He said: “I am really pleased to be joining the Care Quality Commission at a time of challenge for both health and social care. I look forward to working with the CQC team to build on the strong foundations already in place, creating innovative methods of assuring safe and effective care for all.”

CQC chair Peter Wyman said: “Ian was chosen from an outstanding field for his significant leadership experience coupled with his commitment to making a difference to people’s lives.

“His track record of delivering technological innovation at scale in order to deliver benefits for people was the deciding factor – given both CQC’s strategic focus on delivering an intelligence-driven approach to regulation, and the increasingly central role that technology has in transforming outcomes across the health and care system.”
