Andrea Sutcliffe is chief executive of the Appointments Commission www.appointments.org.uk
As the Healthcare Commission cleared the decks in preparation for the launch of the Care Quality Commission on 1 April, some of its final reports made chastening reading for all of us involved in the delivery of healthcare that should be safe, effective and a good experience for patients.

One of the most enjoyable parts of my job at the Appointments Commission is attending the induction courses we hold for new non-executive directors. I am always impressed by the quality and experience of the people I meet and by their enthusiasm and commitment.
