Dr Rosie Benneyworth appointed interim Chief Investigator

by Communications team

We’re pleased to announce that Dr Rosie Benneyworth has been appointed as our new interim Chief Investigator for HSIB.

Over the next year she will guide the organisation as we transition to the Health Services Safety Investigations Body (HSSIB) and to the Special Health Authority for the maternity programme.

Rosie says:

“I am delighted to have been appointed as the interim Chief Investigator at HSIB. I have a longstanding interest in the quality and safety of care that people receive. We know that most people get good care in the NHS, but sometimes they don’t get the outcomes they need or things go wrong. In these circumstances, it is vital that as a system we reflect and learn from these events to improve the safety of care, and HSIB is in a prime position to be able to support this learning.

“I am looking forward to working with the team at HSIB to continue this important work. This is an important year for HSIB as it transitions to the HSSIB and the maternity Special Health Authority, and I am looking forward to supporting colleagues in HSIB effectively through these changes."

Rosie is currently Chief Inspector of Primary Medical Services and Integrated Care at the Care Quality Commission (CQC). She is a GP by background and has held many senior leadership roles in health that include Vice Chair of the National Institute of Health and Care Excellence, Managing Director of the South West Academic Health Science Network and senior clinical commissioning roles in Somerset.

She takes the reins from our current Chief Investigator, Keith Conradi, who announced his retirement in November 2021.

Rosie takes up her post with HSIB on 1 August 2022.
