In his first press conference after taking the job as Chief Inspector of Hospitals, Professor Sir Mike Richards pledged the review teams will be "robust, fair and transparent".
Today I am issuing a call for inspectors. I want assistance in this inspection process.
I want to start building a small army of inspectors.
These inspectors need to come from different walks of life; some of them will be practising clinicians who will come and do two or three inspections a year, some others will be retired clinicians but importantly we are also seeking patients and carers and we will provide training.
We will assess whether services are safe, effective, caring, responsive and well led.
