Acting CEO in DHSC will give 'breathing space'

Stuart Quayle replaces Karen Malone

Appointing an interim chief executive in the Department of Health and Social Care will give 'breathing space' whilst a permanent employee is sought.

That's the view of Lawrie Hooper - the minister in charge of the department:

Stuart Quayle – the current chief registrar – has taken up the role temporarily after the previous post holder Karen Malone resigned from government with immediate effect.

She'd only been in post since January.
