Find out more about Inspection Wales at the Royal Welsh Show

Livestock, farming and forestry aren’t usually part of the work of the Inspection Wales programme. But we’re excited to announce that Inspection Wales will be out in force at this year’s Royal Welsh Show [opens in new window] in Builth Wells, 18-21 July.

Exhibiting together for the first time since the show’s inception, inspectors and corporate staff from Healthcare Inspectorate Wales [opens in new window] (HIW), Estyn [opens in new window], Wales Audit Office [opens in new window] and Care and Social Services Inspectorate Wales [opens in new window] (CSSIW) will be talking to visitors about the work they do both individually and together to help public services in Wales improve.

Together, we’ll be asking people how much they know about our work and gathering feedback to help inform our future communication. There’ll also be lots to see and do on our stand. We’ll be showcasing some of our joint working through case studies, displaying our latest projects and there’ll even be a small area for children.

The Estyn team are looking forward to meeting parents, teachers and learners who may be interested to hear about the way inspections of schools and other education and training providers are changing from September 2017.

Healthcare Inspectorate Wales are attending the show for the first time this year and will be raising awareness of the work within the inspectorate and seeking views on people’s experiences of healthcare services. They launched their new website last month and the team are looking forward to meeting visitors and asking for their views.

At the CSSIW stand, people will be invited to meet with inspectors and find out how to get involved in the inspectorate’s work.  Visitors can also learn more about inspection, registration, enforcement and seek advice on choosing care services.

The Wales Audit Office are returning for their second year and looking forward to having conversations with the public about the valuable role they play in holding public services to account and supporting improvement.

So, whether you’re visiting the show with family, friends or colleagues, come and meet the friendly staff at the Inspection Wales stand and learn more about our work.
