The UK's Department of Health has today announced the appointment of two senior figures of the new Commission for Healthcare Audit and Inspection (CHAI), which comes into being in April 2004. Anna Walker will be its chief executive. Marcia Fry, who has been acting chief operations officer of the embryonic CHAI since May 2003, has been appointed head of operations. Ms Walker is currently director general of land use and rural affairs at the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs. This "new CHAI" will take over the work of four healthcare standards bodies, including the Commission for Health Improvement (or "old CHI"). "CHAI has an ambitious programme to meet," said Ms Walker.
