Report into RQIA board resignations publishedReport into RQIA board resignations published

An independent review into a spate of board resignations from the Regulation and Quality Improvement Authority (RQIA) last June has found that inadequate communication, breakdowns in working relationships and deficiencies in governance were to blame.

According to those who stepped down, the resignations in part were the result of the Department of Health not consulting sufficiently with the RQIA board, prior to taking important decisions regarding the regulator.

While the report makes clear that the speed of decision-making during the COVID-19 pandemic was the main cause for the incident, it also adds that the resignations may have been prevented if there were 'well established and functioning relationships, clearly understood lines of communication [and] reporting and accountability' between the Department and the RQIA.
